“Everyone has only one life...,” is a project prompted by a message from a middle school girl fighting a chronic disease.
Poets have been holding readings across the nation to introduce her message to the general public in Japan, asking people to finish the sentence that begins with “Because everyone have only has one life....”.
“Because everyone has only one life, let's laugh joyfully every day,” a high school student replied.
A mother, whose son committed suicide, finished the phrase as follows, “...let’s live! Live! Everybody, live! I want to live, too.”
A book containing about 60 of the best messages is in print, with the hope that it would inspire people to love life.

If only the Japanese would realize there is a reason to live and there is a Book that teaches how to live!! Then those of us who know Christ must also realize we are accountable to the One who gave us our life.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.
‘Only one life, 'twill soon be past,
Only what's done for Christ will last.’
Let’s live every day as though it were our last day on earth! And if you don't know Christ you can come to Know Him!
