Letter: It’s your life; what’s important to you?


Too often we pick up the newspaper and see nothing but bad news. This not just in our town, but everywhere.

A lot of younger folks who are just starting to truly discover what life is all about and where they belong, are gone before there time because of an act of violence. They will never be able to enjoy what life had in store for them.

Life is not a video game. You cannot hit reset and start all over again.

When I was a teen I thought I was invincible and nothing could hurt me. I was so wrong. I wish I could go back and change some of those bad choices I made. Of c0urse, now it’s too late.

I was too young to understand I was responsible for making those decisions, both good and bad. I never listened when my parents and even grandparents talked to me. I knew it all. No one was going to tell me any different.

The ones fighting seem to be younger and younger. It seems at times there are fights among people who were once friends and now are enemies. Most times if you ask them, they don’t even recall why they are fighting.

There are also a lot of people fighting a different fight — a fight for life. They seek a longer life, a surgery or miracle cure to be discovered. Your entire life can change in the blink of an eye. One day your on top of the world, the next day your being crushed by that same world.

We have no idea what the future holds. The Good Lord is the only one who truly knows. Be thankful and enjoy life. Enjoy the little things. Find something you enjoy and be the best you can be at it. Decide what’s most important in your life.
