Life Is Too Short

When I was in the fifth grade, my friend's father died. I remember not being sure how to react or even what to say to her. She and I recently got in touch again through the Internet and now her husband has suddenly died, so it's like history repeating itself. It's really sad -- some people really do endure their fair share of trouble.

Whenever I hear about a tragedy like this, it reinforces for me how fragile we are and how we can go at any minute. Sometimes I feel like I've been gambling with my life for a long time with the way I don't take care of myself. But I really do want to live longer and have a better quality of life because I'm realiing that it's not fair for me to take advantage of a gift.
