I know there’s been a lot of talk going on with what happened in Paris. I’ve seen it all over the news, all over Facebook, and all over WordPress. People have been posting about it nonstop. I’m sure it all came as a shock to all of us. I usually don’t post about things like this, but it had me thinking.
It wasn’t just Paris but many other places that also have taken a hit. Such as Beirut, Baghdad, and Syria. Now I’m not here to talk about why we should also focus on these other countries, or why people give Paris too much attention, etc etc. I just wanted to really personalize these events by recognizing that it thankfully didn’t happen here in American soil. This could’ve happened in Los Angeles, or New York. Those people who didn’t expect anything at all, died. It could’ve been us. One of our family members. One of our friends.
I think I took this as a reminder that life is short. We don’t know when we’ll die even though we may think and act like we’ll live forever, but that isn’t true. Our future is not guaranteed. So guys, let’s not take this life for granted and appreciate all that is beautiful. Please go home and give a family or friend a hug.
