I was never afraid to die, but I often think about death. Where am I going to die? What causes my death? This thought never stops every day.
Mass shootings in Colorado July 20th 2012, made me more believe that life is so difficult because we easily could die anytime, anywhere, even with any ridiculous reasons. Just watching a movie in the theaters, we could have met death and dying on the spot. Horrifying, of course.
But more horrifying to those who have left behind. They still have to move on and deal with the sadness. What a terrible loss, to that I say the sincerest condolences. I’m sure the victims are already happy meeting God up there in a place called peace.
So often I have found myself taking it for granted. Every hug from a family member. Every laugh we share with friends. Even the times of solitude are all blessings. Every second of every day is a gift.
