Words cannot even begin to describe how devastating our world can sometimes be. What happened today in Connecticut is unfathomable and such a tragedy. I can’t seem to understand how sick a person must be to believe that they have the right to take a way a person’s life, let alone the lives of 20 children! My heart and thoughts go out to the victims, families, and all those affected by this detrimental shooting.
When things like this happen it really makes you take a step back and realize that most of us take our lives for granted, especially when our lives could be ended in a split second. I think it is crucial to remember that no matter how hard life seems to be, and no matter how angry you might be at someone, there is always someone else who is worse off than you are. Life is definitely precious yet extremely fragile. I for one will make more of a conscious effort to appreciate my life more and love both the good and the bad.
Make sure your life is fulfilled each day, and don’t wait until your older to be happy and enjoy your life, for you never know how short life can actually be. Forget about grudges, laugh a lot, and say I love you each day to the people you care most about.
