Before the light, before the dark

"The whole life is spent in the shadows looking for that light that dazzle us at birth, revealing part of a mystery and freeing us from the enveloping darkness." Who was the woman which had this fetus in the womb? Who he would become once given birth? How he would be transformed before dark? What was he dreaming? How he felt before being stopped? We'll never have any answers because his chances to being in the world have been stopped. But the message that brings with him is an invitation to life. Today we contemplate him in his small form trapped in time. And we should be grateful, because his sad "sacrifice" gives us the opportunity to realize how life is a big occasion that too often the mankind forget, preferring the hate, inflicting violence, pain and death.
