I’m sure everyone has a moment in their life where it hits them that they are not immortal and will leave this mortal coil, sometime or another.
It can be the death of one’s parents, one’s comrade in battle, witnessing cruelty inflicted upon the unfortunate who find themselves in the wrong places at the wrong times, or any number of things.
The death of a friend so soon after high school was shocking at first. But before my very eyes I have evidence of how short life is, and how important it is not to waste what time I might, or might not have.
In memory of my friend, I will write one post every day this week until Saturday the 30th of June, a week after his body was discovered by the police.
