Perhaps it sounds conceited calling my life my only responsibility. Where is the philanthropism, the Christian outreach to others? That has an important place, too, I say. But I cannot take responsibility for any other life than first for the one given me here and now. If I donít treat this life as a valuable treasure, how can I be trusted with anything else? I havenít always realized this important truth. It has taken my parentsí cancer and this month of navel-gazing to bring me to this insight. And for that, it is an ultimately valuable experience.
