Not if you don’t believe, he’s not. So my advice to you is to believe. Believe in things you can’t see. Believe in things that defy logic. Believe in the power of love to change the world. Believe in your feelings, emotions, and gut. Believe in the impossible and the improbable. Believe in God, and magic, and most of all, yourself. Believe that every day you wake to face the world, miracles will happen. Believe. Believe with all your heart. Believe until the day you die. Because when you stop believing, my dear child, you face the dull, gray of adulthood with its long shadows of regret.
