Tonight, whilst watching a documentary on the civil war, this letter was featured at the end. A letter written by Major Ballou to the love of his life, his wife Sarah, a week prior to being killed on the battlefield. I have never heard nor read anything more beautiful nor more powerful in the entirety of my life, nor is it likely that I ever will.
I am absolutely floored and equally blown away. And I feel privileged and honoured to have been able to bare witness to such a timeless and beautiful piece of writing.
I am glad this entered my path tonight. And I hope you take the time to listen. This is the love that you deserve.
