Life is Unpredictable
I found out today that a high school friends’ brother was killed. He was trying to stop a fight and was killed by a bow and arrow. I keep thinking of the last few times I saw him. He was so cheerful and happy, and I didn’t have the time to talk with him. I am disappointed in myself that I suddenly feel grief over somebody I didn’t know that well. Why does it take a death to make me miss somebody and feel sadness? His whole family was always so good to me and I can’t imagine the pain they are going through. They are a wonderful Christian family which makes this so much sadder. Am I just dwelling on this because it’s so tragic? I want to reach out to his sister who was such a close friend in high school, but I feel like I should have done so before this happened. There were many opportunities and I didn’t do it. I feel almost inappropriate to reach out after all these years only because a tragedy happened. This is a reminder to cherish your friends and family. Keep in touch with the good people in your life. Be kind to others because you never know what they may be going through.
