thoughts about human mortality

i received word a few hours ago that a friend of mine from high school was killed in an automobile accident in california earlier today.

my mind is reeling.  i can’t grasp it, and perhaps i never will.

it makes me realize the frailty of life; about how we really have no guarantees about how long we’ll be given on this earth.

i’m speechless.

live each day as if it were your last.  let those you love and care for know that you love and care for them.  you never know how much time you have.

with love,
-j
