As The World Turns Best Lines Tuesday 8/31/10


Provided By Eva

Margo: What do you mean?

Kim: [Sighs] Mom meant so much to so many people, and after we give her money to charity, as she requested, and her jewelry and keepsakes to various people and the wonderful collection of books she loved so much, then what?

Margo: We go on.

Kim: Doesn't it seem as if it's not enough? That there should be more?

Bob: What are you saying?

Kim: Mom lived 91 years. She made contributions. She changed lives. She gave life. There just should be more.

Bob: Excuse me.

Margo: Oh. Well, what are you thinking?

Tom: That Kim's right. A quiet, private service, this short yet comprehensive will, a small gathering of friends and relatives, this huge crater in our lives, ye everything seems the same. I mean, how can that be? I mean, she was 91. I should be thankful for all the years that we had her here with us. So why do I feel so angry?

Margo: Because. Because she went quietly, all alone in her apartment, and none of us saw it coming, and we all just wish we had a chance to say goodbye.

Bob: Somebody should say something.

Kim: Oh, honey. What about the prayer that Mom liked so much?

Margo: Yeah, yeah. The Thanksgiving prayer.

Lucinda: Give it a try.

Kim: Do you still remember the words?

Bob: Yeah, yeah. It begins, "Oh, God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry."

Nancy: When I have work, help me to remember the jobless. When I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home at all.  When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer. And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency, to stir my compassion, and be concerned enough to help by word and deed those who cry out for what we take for granted. Amen.
