Life is short

A colleague, our librarian passed away recently. The day he passed away I bumped into him while I'm on my way to the rest room, the next morning I heard he was gone. I don't get to know him personally as when I joined this college he was already moving in and out of the hospital. Recently he has been more regular at work, though I don't quite know him, I felt the loss...

One of my students is very closed to him and he shared how they used to spend time together and how on that fateful day they had lunch together, chatted... He was in a shock upon hearing the news and suffering from sleepless nights....

We got the chance to discuss life and death in class, how such incident remind us to reflect the way we've been living, to put our perspective in place and re-examined our priorities.

Life is short....

True, that's why nowadays, I try to make myself and family happy always and enjoy our life.....I also received 2 bad news within one week ~ one of my long neighbour passed away and she is only 38 yrs old (single), suddenly collapsed and never regain, and another friend of mine, lawyer, only 36 yrs old, got stroke ~ at the moment, is recovery......Life is really unpredictable.
