We often hear people say that life is short (tell that to a teenager sitting in calculus class). What are some of the other admonishments to not let life slip away unappreciated?
- Live for today.
- Seize the day.
- Stop and smell the roses.
- Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow there may not be any.
- Nobody realizes how delicate a life can be until it’s taken.
- Life goes by in the blink of an eye.
- Life is like art done in chalk—beautiful, but temporary.
These last three in particular illustrate the mindsets of people who have lost loved ones suddenly. Car crashes, workplace accidents, domestic violence, shootings—all of these circumstances leave families in wrenching pain, wondering why a loved one’s life was suddenly snatched away. Looking back, these folks wish for a second chance to show how much they loved her, to spend more time with him, to have more patience with her, and on, and on…
When the death was caused by someone else, there may also be anger, maybe even a yearning for vengeance. At these times, the bereaved need to realize that vengeance will not return their loved one; it will only cause pain to others, including the ones who will be left behind when the avenger is sent to prison.
