Don't Let Your Love Become Lost in the Great Divide

To realize the value of:
Ten years: Ask someone dying of AIDS
Four years: Ask someone dying of Heart Failure.
One year: Ask someone dying of Cancer .
Nine months: Ask a mother who gave birth to a still born.
One month: Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
One week: Ask someone who is out of the country when a damily member dies.
One hour: Ask the Paramedic enroute to the ER with a dying patient.
One minute: Ask the soldier that fell asleep for "just a minute" on guard duty.
One-second: Ask a soldier who has survived a firefight.
One millisecond: If you could, I would tell you to ask the soldier that didn't survive a firefight.
To realize the value of a loved one: Lose one.
For whom the bell tolls; Time waits for no man.
When times get hard here, I remember the smiles on my wife and children's faces when we were having good times, and I look foward to the time we will have good times again. Cherish those closest to you, and do not speak ill to them or of them to others. Consider yourself lucky you have those you love nearby.
