This moment is all there is...


I've been trying to think of something meaningful to post in light of the tragedy at Virginia Tech two days ago. My heart is aching for all of those broken hearts and so much human potential lost.
I cannot imagine what it must be like for the families who raised and nurtured children and provided them with the opportunity of a promising life
to have it all snuffed out in a moment. On Sunday, those 32 people were still among us, living their lives. Now they're gone.

And yet it also makes me determined to appreciate every moment that I have the privilege of taking another breath. How else can we honor those who no longer have that privilege?

Well said. I can't even imagine the pain felt by the families of the victims. And I suppose also the pain felt by the family of the perpetrator.
