For Daniel and his family...

Just found out today that an old classmate was killed in a car accident tuesday night.
My heart and prayers go to Daniel and his family and hope they will all find some peace.

The weird thing is, I read it in the paper yesterday and didn't reflect at all that I might know this person. It was the same age, and the town I grew up in...
Heard it from friends today that it was him, and still now (hours after) I can still not grasp it.

"Donkey's life story" will be postponed to later until further notice. Today will be a night of reflections...hope you will all join me in that. Found this poem by Mother Theresa....found it appropriate.


Life is Too Precious

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
---Mother Theresa
