As I type this Friday night I just got word that it is likely one of my martial arts instructors was the victim of a double murder. Two people were found dead at the residence and her son is in custody. Not looking good.
It’s times like this that I sit here and reflect on life. Friends and family that I do not value enough and that I do not express appreciation that they are in my life. I guess it is human nature – especially in today’s busy, modern world to improperly prioritize things like work, TV, and blogging over time spent with friends and family. I am sitting here really regretting not showing her more appreciation when I would see her once in awhile when heading to class. I trained with her for the first 12 to 18 months when I started stickfighting.
We can prepare for all kinds of natural disasters, civil unrest, and economic unrest – and you can step in front of a bus and get splattered all over the road. Sometimes bad things have to happen to remind us of who and what is important to us.
Take care all –
