Death and Loss.

Kay, I'll keep this short.

I was just watching a documentary on the late Heath Ledger's life. I'm sure you all know him.

Though I didn't know him personally, people have said that he was a kind, reserved, fun human being. An all around great guy. He had a passion for acting and he did what he loved in life, and did it well. I admire him for that. Then tragedy struck. He passed away.

It got me thinking... about how abruptly people in your life can disappear. People, be it your neighbour who lent you that extra cup of sugar you needed to make cookies; your friend, with whom you spent every night awake, laughing til you couldn't breathe; your parent, someone you trusted and could depend on (in some cases, I suppose). Anyone. They can just be torn away from you by some freak accident or disease as if their lives were of no importance. It just blows my mind. It's almost frustrating.

My heart aches for people who have lost someone important in their life, be it from wars in third world countries, to losing a parent to cancer. I can't imagine the grief you must have dealt with, and I mean that in the most sincerest of ways. I admire you so much for your courage and strength. I think you're all underappreciated because it's hard, and that's a given.

Maybe I'm being too emotional, if so, I apologize, but I seem get touched by the simplest of things. Cheese I just wanted to get that out there and see what you guys thought about it.
