Inspiring Moments. Defining Moments.
In the song 'Moments' by Canadian country musicians, Emerson Drive, a homeless man explains to another that 'he hasn't always been this way.' That he's had his moments, times in his life when he has faced fears, overcome adversity and achieved greatness...
I've had my moments, days in the sun, Moments I was second to none, Moments when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do. Like that cool night on the E. Street Bridge, When a young man almost ended it, I was right there, wasn't scared a bit, And I helped to pull him through. Lookin' at me now, you might not know it. Oh, lookin' at me now, you might not know it, But I've had my moments.
It is these moments that the homeless man is most proud of and shares most often. Moments when his actions defined who he is, like when he talked a stranger, a young man, out of committing suicide.
In everyone’s life, when faced with a fork in the road, decisions define. Actions speak volumes.
