When we read/hear about other people's pain, to us, it's news 'cos we're not going through it, but to them, it's pain. Pain is pain no matter who it affects. I was on my blog rounds today when i stumbled on 2 of my daily reads, Londonbuki and Rosetintedglasses. They blogged about a guy, who is a blogger that passed away. I didn't know him, neither did i get to read his blog entries before today. As i read his blog, i felt the tears stinging my eyes. I tried to force them back, but to no avail. I've never been an emotional person. Infact, when my uncle who was 35 died 3 years ago, i didn't cry. I'm somewhat surprised that reading this young man's blog entry made me cry. Tomorrow isn't guaranteed, so we need to make the best use of every opportunity we're given to wake to another beautiful day. Looks like he had a premonition of his death. Just read his last blog entry where he professed his love for a certain lady. His last statement on his blog, had a tone of finality to it. That person u've vowed never to talk to again, make peace with him/ her now 'cos u never know what will happen the next minute. That outfit u're saving for a special occassion, wear it now, that person u're hiding ur feelings for, show him/ her that u care. I wonder how the lady would feel reading his blog, him professing his love for her on the www? I'll leave u guys with something i read (i've forgotten who actually said it), when u came into the world, u were crying and everyone around u was happy and rejoicing, live ur life in a way that when u leave, u'll be rejoicing and those around will shed tears of joy for being a part of ur life.
May his soul rest in peace, and i pray the Lord who is the greatest comforter of all, comforts his family and friends.
