By now, we should all be aware of the complete devastation that has hit in the form of a tsunami affecting no less than 9 countries. A natural disaster powerful enough to have moved an island 100 feet southwest of it's original location and disturbed the rotation of the earth. Over 23,200 people are presumed dead and the numbers are rising by the hour.
Wherever you are in your day, stop and breathe for just a minute and realize the impact of a tragedy like this. If you can help in any way, please reach out.
Things like this bring armageddon images to mind, don't they? Go ahead and allow the thoughts to roam your mind...if we were facing the end of days, how would you like to live out the rest of your life? May as well start today, don't you think?
Do you want to finish your life as a liar? A cheat? Someone who carelessly hurts other people? Will you perish as a hero? A coward? A selfish person? Will you have made this world better at all during your lifetime?
Makes you think...maybe, for the souls it applies to, it can make you act as well. Whenever it happens, however...one day your life will end. Will it have been a worthwhile life? Will you have lived well and be remembered well by all who encountered you? Are you loved? Are you hated? Have you loved? Have you hated?
Could be time to stop reading (and writing) this post and make a change.
