As if anyone needed a reminder . . .

Yesterday I learned that a nurse from the downstate office of Delaware Hospice was killed in a head-on collision caused by a drunk driver. It was 3:30 a.m. and she had been called out to assist a family in distress. After doing so and heading home, a drunk driver heading down the wrong way on the highway hit her head-on, causing her SUV to spin around to the other side of the road and then be hit broadside by another car.

Here, a nurse whose calling in life was to assist the families of dying patients at all hours, was killed by someone who clearly did not value life enough to NOT drive while drunk.

As I indicated in my earlier post, life is too damn short to waste on things that do not matter to us. If there is one thing we should focus on it is to create a life for ourselves that gives us the most happiness and satifaction.

Because we don't when doing so will be too late.
