The news has moved on. But the loss is still deeply raw to those closest around him.

I love them.

It’s great if you have a deep passion and a grand plan for how you want to change the world or become rich and famous.
Do that. Follow your dreams.
But don’t step on anyone along the way.
That’s because the meaning of our lives, is the sum of all the little things that happen, the people that we touch, the smiles and hugs that we share.
If your life is cut short and you’ve been waiting for your grand plan to unfold to make that difference in the world, you have lost.
You’ve lost all the opportunities to make a difference, to yourself, to others.
Make a difference today.
Because there might not be a tomorrow.
