currently: sad. but thankful

"Life is short, live it well,
Live for others- we rise and fall together…" - Jon Foreman

It was Macbeth in Shakespeare's play who said "life is but a walking shadow."
I didn't know Liss like others did. But there is still pain.
There is pain for a girl that left this earth too early than she was suppose to.
It's pain for a father, for a mother who never saw their child grow up.
It's pain for a brother or sister who never grew up with each other by their side.
It's pain for a friend who never got to share a last moment.
It's pain for a man who made one small but dramatic mistake.
It's pain for a person who never got to have a moment with her.

Death.
The coldest, most painful word in the English language.
She was only 17.

This is a reminder how life is so fragile. Like the wings of a butterfly. So light, so free, so beautiful.

I never knew you Liss, but I love you. Because of the impact you left on this earth.

Now is the time to laugh, love and live. Remember, today could be your last.
Much love.

  2. Me and beezle (nat) were having a long conversation about Liss last night.
    We were saying that even though we didn't know her, we still felt like we had really lost a close friend.
    I think that's what I love about LOBH. We're just so close.
