|Although I never met River,|
nor was I aware that he existed until after he had gone,
but I still miss him, and love him.
I work as hard as I can to help carry on his message,
and sometimes I feel that I am powerless;
just one girl fighting for preservation,
with the whole world as my adversary.
But then I come here,
and I read these letters from around the world,
and I listen to these people who are fighting
the very same battles I am,
and I feel like they are a hand reaching out,
and that my hand is a link that connects everyone
so that together we can be strong.
River used all his recourses to help tell his message,
and we, who are still sharing the Earth, are too.
We are using the support of each other,
and the love and affection that we each have for River.
And that, in my opinion, is the strongest message of all.
