My apologies and hopes.

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 1, 2012, 5:12 PM
  • Mood: Hope
I realize I have been absent for some time, and for this I do apologize. I must confess a bit of frustration concerning the extent to which my duties and responsibilities occupy my time. This can not be helped. As leader of the Autobots, I must attend to my responsibilities to them. I can not remain an effective leader if I shirk those duties as their leader. The Autobots are not merely soldiers under my command, they are also friends, brothers to me. I will not allow myself to stand apart from them, though sometimes I feel myself isolated from them because of my heritage and title as Prime. This oft forced isolation does distress me, but I know they understand that I do care for them.

I may be their leader, but I will not ask them to do that which I am unwilling to do myself. I will, however, choose the one among my team with the best skills and abilities for the task at hand, whether it is myself or another. To that end, we work together as a cohesive unit, each of us stepping in when we are needed, guarding each other so that when the day comes to a close, we all return home intact and alive.

It is my hope that our human friends continue to learn from us the things we seek to teach them, that they grow to understand as a species that they all have a place and by working together, they all will survive the infancy of their race. Maturity and understanding takes time, and for such a young species as humans, you all have so much to learn, much we can teach you all. By using the Allspark to lead us here to your delicate and beautiful planet, Primus has charged us with your welfare and guidance. Please heed our teachings that you may learn to become the best your race has to offer, and one day, walk with us among the stars as brothers.

Until the day, til all are one.
Optimus Prime

*chuckles* Boy oh boy, Optimus... I know it sounds strange, but I really do understand what you mean when you "feel isolated". A bit, at least.
In a big family such as mine, I've learned to take responsibility for them. It can be a blessing, considering the fact that I have siblings that are each unique and different in their own ways. But being "the leader" in my family, it can be a burden, because I worry constantly about their future, their behavior. All I want is the best for this family, and I would do anything to protect it.
It can be quite lonely, knowing that I'm entitled as "THE older sister", but despite its weight, it is a burden that I carry with pride. It can be heart-wrenching at times, up to the point of exhausting me, but I do stand for all the good that each and every one of my siblings have.
I can't be the one to give them orders about how to live their lives, but I can guide them to what I believe is right.

You are entirely right, Optimus Prime. I want to learn more from you, and use your wisdom to spread throughout the whole world. Unfortunately for us, we live a short life in a twisted world, but I know that I will make the best out of it.

Thank you for posting this, sir. *salutes you* Your words inspire me. I hope I can inspire my siblings as well.

Don't be sorry for your absent Optimus, everyone can understand your position, your huge duty, your responsabilities, I also think that every autobot loving you for what you do for everyone, for your friends/brother.. for all humans and Earth..
I wish to learn something with your learning.. and try to be more mature.. because I'm still a child.. uhm.. more or less.. *giggle a little*
But.. I wanna say one thing to you.. try to take care of yourself.. and if you have some doubts.. or problems.. sometime it's good try to speak with someone closest to you, uhm.. no I'm not so sage like you but.. I just tried Xd

oh and..I will try to help you Autobots, until I can.. with my possibilities *huge smile* (until I can with my english *laugh out loud* )

All of my greatings Optimus, I hope to hear you again!

It's good to hear from you, Optimus! I noticed we hadn't heard from you in a while, but that's understandable. You're the Autobot leader and have responsibilities, after all.

I'm glad that you are all here to help, and grateful that you're willing to teach us humans. I'll make sure to remember your words.
