Yesterday a friend shared with me about how her friend died in a head-on collision as he was biking along a rural area for the fun of it...
He was due to be married to his fiancée. They have been together for 10 years now. They bought an apartment, made plans for their wedding, and (I assume) would have been very excited to start their new life together as husband and wife.
My heart broke as I heard the story of 2 people I don't even know.
I relate because I feel that there's so much more in life that I want to do, and have yet to go through, especially in terms of career/love.
I guess the moral of the story is not only to be careful on the road, but to always be careful no matter what. Along with always being sure of where you'll go after you die. Hearing stories of losses always make me want to make sure that I don't regret. I don't want to do something that I don't mean, and regret it if it's too late. Making peace with everybody is one thing, but making peace with yourself is another.
So be careful when you're travelling, guys. I hope to see all my friends in my lifetime alive and kicking :)
