This I Believe,
I believe in Aaditya Michael Dasgupta’s Unforgettable Smile.
How it lit up my sister’s life and healed her aching heart when he was born, just a few months after our mother’s passing. How it shined in his dad’s proud eyes as he sang, John Denver’s “Country Roads Take me Home”. I Believe in his smile that caught his older sister’s mischief and turned into frowns when his parents displined her. I believe in that smile that was his Grandparents joy and his Aunts’ soothing peace. I see and believe in his smile even in the shadows of his death as it brings hope to every child that suffers, to every parent who weeps, to every doctor who perseveres and to the world who has so much to learn.
