You are precious with a preciousness
that cannot be computed.
Nothing, absolutely nothing can separate you
from the source of all life.
Not disease, not suffering, not even death.
Go forth sustained by the knowledge
that you precious, you are embraced,
able to go forth with a courage that is not your own,
because its source is the source of all that is beautiful,
all that is good, all that is true.
~ Archbishop Desmond Tutu
