The Rainbow Door

Dear Oscar,

Look at this, we’re halfway through another week. It might not seem like it to you, but time is moving on.
Just hang in there a little bit longer. I know you have the inner strength to do it. But please, while you struggle to fill your time, don’t focus on the negatives. You might currently live in a black and white world but your future is bursting with colour – with promise, with hope, with opportunity, with giving and caring and loving; it’s coloured by all the things that you can do, things that only you can do, the changes you can make, the people you can help, the lives you can improve, the children you can delight, the adults you can educate, the laws you might consider challenging. In the four minutes it has taken me to write this, I have already filled a sheet of paper with all the things you can do, thanks to your being Oscar Pistorius, Blade Running, Kick-Ass Trail Blazer. So you just think about that, the next time you feel hopeless and without light. Because if I can paint one sheet of paper with your colour in a matter of minutes, just imagine what you can come up with if you think, if you dream, if you are determined.
All you have to do is focus on the rainbow door to your new life.

Love Carly
