#1 I remember being jostled along by a huge crowd, people shouting, going crazy. I couldn't quite see who was making things so wild.
#2 I remember hearing people praising God, singing their hearts out. I was shaking all over, almost feeling whatever it was that stirred them so deeply.
#3 I remember watching him speak, almost idolising him. Such charisma, such a gift. It was as if I was special, just by being close to such greatness, such presence.
#4 I remember so much of what he said... truths that cut to my heart, questions that shook my foundations. I almost thought I needed a new mind to take it all in.
#5 I remember sitting at a meal table... the food and laugher.. the bottle of wine and serious talk of revolution. I felt that we were so close to true solidarity, to real change.
#6 I remember late night supper around the campfire... the flickering light... our flushed faces... the cup passed around... it really tasted like the sweetness of friendships that might last forever.
#7 I remember arguing almost every day... it was such a long road... too long... we started out as best of friends, like brothers. At the end it was as if we'd come close to not talking at all...
#8 I remember waiting... just sitting and waiting... after all, he told us to... but wait for what? And though I didn't know why, I could feel the anguish, the struggle.
#9 I remember promising. I promised so much. I had to. He deserved it from me. From all of us. I can still hear the echoes of my silence when they questioned me.
#10 I remember expecting... expecting him to come back and rescue me. He was that kind of person. But he’d been taken away. And just his absence almost felt like a betrayal.
