How Has Alexey Affected YOUR Life?
« on: October 26, 2005, 05:12:35 PM »
Just would like to know. I've done the same topic for Olga, if you'd like to see it under her name. Some people have interesting ideas...I mean emotionally. So...To me, well, I've become a more devoted Christian, generally a better person looking off of his life and trying to follow his examples.
Smart boy too, I'd wager. I've even taken the time to talk to other people and ask them about what they do. I know it's naive of me, but it's something sweet Alexey would do to his neighbors. Of course, then he always made friends. And I think it works wonderfully!

I thank God for the example of patience, faith, love and humility He has provided us in the Tsarevich.  To me Alexei Nikolaevich is not only a saint but a good example of how to handle the stuff that never seems to go away.  I love him very much.

How has Alexei affected my life...well, he turned it all around. He has been such an example for me in these last four years, and also such a blessing. I definately consider him a role model for me and my future. There will always be a place for Alexei in my heart.

I don't think he's affected me at all. One person who did, though--his mum.

He's helped me to think twice about my actions, and I consider him a guardian angle, so when I am in a crisis I look to him, and something always turns up to make it right again.

I think he likes to play jokes on me too though LOL. Like when I was gone at Skate America this weekend, when it was over my friend Ruby and I went out to wait for her father and niether of our cell phones would work, when they worked fine in the arena. We went inside and tried walking around for a signal but didn't get one. Finally we walked out and went to the parking lot and there was the blasted signal LOL.
Hatred – this is a disgusting feeling. Yes, there is sport gambling, there is a striving to win. But to hate someone – this is awful! I think, that first of all you have to learn to respect your rival. -- Evgeni Plushenko

As a Christian, I'm entitled to say this. Bless you. I'm glad he was of such vitality to you.

When I first thought of writting a novel about Alexei, my mother asked me a curious question: "Why Alexei?"

Why indeed?

Anastasia and all the people who claimed to be her is facinating stuff, Nicholas is interesting because he was the Last Tsar. (Although technically it was Alexei and his Uncle.)

It was something that drew me to Alexei, I can't quite explain what it was, I was wondering through my local library and I was walking through the ancient history section as part research for my current novel.

I turned my head and I saw in the aisle across was the back of a book about the Russian Revolution. And on the back of the cover of the fairly old book was a picture of someone I recgonised as Tsar Nicholas II. (I'd done a study of the English Royals and had seen the famous picture of George V and Nicholas together.)

With him was a woman with sad eyes, (Alexandra) and a little boy standing between them, I blinked, because for a momment it looked like he smiled at me. But after a closer look his face was in a serious little expression that reminded me of my brother as a little boy.

I'd only briefly look at the Romanovs after my Mother took me and my sister to see Anastasia. She scoffed at how childish and fairy-tale like it was and borrowed Anastasia's album for me. Needless to say, it frighted the eleven year old me that such a thing could be possible and I gave it back to her.

But suddenly I found all the books I could about the Romanovs and I began to become facinated with the boy-Tsar, the more I read, the more he seemed to be reaching out to me saying:

"This. This is me. My story has never been more then a paragraph in history, but it was more then that, I wasn't a Saint, though they have made me one, I was a normal boy in abnormal circumstances."

I know it sounds strange, but that's how Alexei affected me to the point I had to do my part and try to unravel the mystery of the last of the Tsars.

There is far more information that mysteriously finds it's way to me, though emails or through books I'd never have thought of looking through for information.

I'd like to think Alexei's keeping a close eye on what I do, and I feel sometimes when I'm writting he's there saying: "no, that's not right, it was like that," or "Naysta wouldn't say it like that, she'd make a joke out of it." Or maybe even, "yes, that exactly what they were like."

So he's really changed my life for the better, he's given me a totally different perspecive on life and enabled me to see past what history says about a person and focus on the person themselves.
The little Tsarevich is still so young!
Alexei's a fledgling, an innocent son.
Holy Russia, pray for this little one.

That's truly fascinating! I think there's something that everyone finds so moving in Alexey- definitely.

Alexei is a big part in my life, he definitly changed it! Whenever I'm in a bad situation I talk to him and I feel like he's always watching me and I really feel like I know him!

When ever I'm in emotional or physical pain like if I fall or something or twist my ancle or what ever I tell my self to not make a big deal over it because the little Tsareivch suffered much more then I have!

He has also brought me closer with God. Now because of Alexei I go to church every week by my self with a close friend and look forward to it! ;D

I think I've become I better person because of him, following his examples has helped me alot in the short three years that I've known the little guy!

Yes, yes I know what you mean! He is like the little brother, well, I don't have. But there's always something about him that people can relate to and hold dear. That is why, I think, he is one of our favorite Romanovs. Despite his sad end, we do not only sympathize because he was youngest and cherubic in heart, but because we can all have a part of him near and dear to us. Isn't that right?

Romanov_Fan19,

Very nicely stated, and I agree. He taught me to love life more and be totally involved, not just idly allow life to pass by. Thank you for your sharing.
