The human life
I was having such a wonderful day going about my own business and getting things accomplished like any normal person does. But a few minutes ago, while meandering on facebook, i was informed that someone from my graduating class was in a motorcycle accident today and died. I mean, i knew him pretty well in high school but it's been five years since i graduated and i haven't spoken to him since then. I'm obviously distraught about the situation because, let's face it, anyone dying is a tragedy.
i guess my point for this rambling is that you never know who is going to be gone tomorrow. You never think it will happen to you or to anyone you know. we are programmed to think we are sort of invincible. and i'm sure after typing this and aftersilently paying my respects to him and his family, i'm going to go about my own business once again. But this one hit a little closer to home than usual. I'm going to make it a goal to be more appreciative and thankful for everything/one in my life. It sounds a little cheesy, but it is what it is. Everyone has the room to be more appreciative of the human life.
Rest in Peace Jason Cox. You will be missed dearly. <3
