You Never Know When or How!

Have you ever heard the expression, “Life is what happens when we’re making other plans!”? The longer we live the more we understand what that means. One particular aspect of life that we can’t exactly plan out is when it will end. Nobody truly knows how and when they will die. A terminal illness can be medically predicted but that’s not the aspect I refer to. Many people die every day, unexpectedly sudden and tragic. I remember back about twenty years ago, when a suicidal pilot took off from a Central Virgina airstrip in his small plane with the intent of ending it all. It had something to do with divorce. On that same Summer Sunday afternoon, a retired minister was relaxing on a hammock in his own back yard. With no warning at all, he was killed when the suicidal pilot did a nosedive into the ground right squarely on top of him. This clip is a news report of a vacationer jogging along Hilton Head Beach, SC being hit by a small plane making a forced landing due to engine failure. In both cases, neither victim ever knew what hit them. Life is a precious commodity. Don’t waste any of it.

Life is so short. Months ago a coworker passed, though I know she's been suffering from some illness she's still young. Last week a staff in our department passed after a short battlr with a blood illness but I remember him telling us years ago he had prostate problem. His brother wanted him to be promoted of which I am opposed to because it would demoralize most if not all employees. Now he is gone.
