The WORLD by Eduardo Galeano

A man from the town of Negua, on the coast of Colombia, was able to climb way up into the sky. On his return, he told of his trip. He explained how he had contemplated human life from way upon high. He said that we are a sea of tiny flames. “The world,” he revealed, “is a huge mass of people, a sea of tiny flames.” Each person shines with his or her own light. No two flames are ever alike. There are large flames and little flames, flames of every colour. Some people’s flames are so serene they don’t even flicker in the wind, while others have such wild flames that they fill the air with their sparks. Some foolish flames neither burn nor shed light, but others blaze with life so fiercely that you just can’t look at them without blinking and whoever approaches them, will light right up. —Short story from The Book of Embraces by Eduardo Galeano. A bright flame has been extinguished but many more burn so much brighter for having been touched by such a truly magnificent flame.
