Memories live on even though we lose people in our lives as time goes by. 

As we traverse our life journey, we cross paths with different individuals. Some of them leave an indelible mark in our memory, while others are fleeting encounters that fade away with time. 

However, this is the nature of life – people enter and exit our lives, and it’s up to us to cherish the moments and memories they leave behind. The timeless saying, “People come and go,” is a reminder of the instability of life and the significance of every interaction.

Robert Ross Williams, a renowned writer, has authored three books that have gained much appreciation: Woodlawn Giants, Rainbow Farm book, and Rainbow Farm 2.0. 

Woodlawn Giants by Robert Ross Williams is a captivating and heart-warming story that follows a group of young boys as they grow up in the charming town of West Memphis, Arkansas. The author beautifully describes the towering trees in their neighborhood, known as the Woodlawn Giants, who become a symbol of comfort and protection for the boys as they navigate through life’s ups and downs. The boys’ adventures are full of excitement and challenges as they take on their neighborhood adversaries. Through the eyes of the boys, readers are taken on a journey of self-discovery, friendship, and resilience that is sure to leave a lasting impression. 

In the book Woodlawn Giants, as the boys grow up, their memories live on while the pine trees still stand.

On the other hand, ever since Donald Trump was elected as the 45th President of the United States, Robert Ross Williams’s Rainbow Farm book has meticulously documented the country’s political landscape. The book offers a unique perspective on the current political affairs of the US.

Childhood Friends Hit Different

As we look back on our lives, we often find ourselves reminiscing about our childhood days. Among the many memories that flood our minds, our friendships from that time are some of the most cherished. 

It’s hard to put into words just how much those friendships meant to us and how they shaped us into the people we are today. Even now, years later, the memories of those friendships still evoke a sense of warmth and nostalgia that is unmatched by any other experience in life. 

For some reason, it feels more valuable and genuine. Maybe because it is childhood itself. Childhood involves many great experiences, and the idea of being a child again is tempting. 

Capturing and Cherishing the Moments

Losing someone in different ways is one of the depressing things in life. But as time passes, your memories of them become even more precious. Each cherished memory becomes a treasure you can hold onto forever, a way to keep the person you loved close to your heart, even though they are no longer with you. 

Every person we encounter in our lives has become a part of us. Sometimes, occurrences are out of our control, so acceptance is vital in this case. Life’s unpredictability may be daunting, but it’s also full of surprises, which is an exciting part of our journey here.

Furthermore, we should cherish the people we hold in the present. Because what matters now is today. The people we met but lost in the past remain in our hearts because, indeed, memories live on. What we can do is treasure the memories we had with them, hoping for their happiness even without us in their lives.

However, in the present, we have individuals with us. We are encouraged to continue making memories together and never take them for granted.

A Start of Something New

Throughout our journey in life, we experience the pain of losing people dear to us. However, as we feel saddened by the loss, we also gain something valuable in return. 

Perhaps we learn to cherish the memories we shared with them, or we develop a newfound appreciation for the people still in our lives. Regardless of what we gain, we can find comfort in knowing that our experience of loss has helped us grow and become stronger.
