Well, what is there to say really . But what do you mean with this, that we actually should live every day as our last? To show each and every close person every little bit of love and care you have for them each day your whole life out, because you can lose them or they can lose you at any moment? Because, well it's definitely not the first time I've heard it, but it's sure as hard to think about it when you hurdle yourself in and out of each day that passes. I love my parents, my relatives and all my close friends and all the nice people in school. You sure wanna leave a mark to make that clear for them, before you're gone that say. It's hard to take initiative every damn day though, for someone as me. And heck, I have no idea how to describe Me

More than that won't come from me right now.

I got lost for words by this story Sempu. I dunno if I should thank you or not, depends on how you see it. But it/you made me think alright... oh yes it/you did.

Reminds me of the movie "A Walk to Remember" that is such a good movie... If you liked that video I would highly recommend watching that movie. It will make you cry and smile.

"We were given: Two hands to hold. To legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else. For us to find."

"Gandhi said that whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it because nobody else will. Like when someone comes into your life and half of you says: 'You're nowhere near ready'. And the other half says: 'Make her yours forever'."-Remember Me

That was incredible. Both beautiful and heart-wrenchingly tragic. It's so true. Everyday really does need to be lived like it is our last, because for some, it might be. That poor woman knew that each day she was one step closer to an imminent death, and that each night might be her last, but she still chose to marry her love. Even in her frail state she took each day by the horns and squeezed every bit out if it that she could. Absolutely inspiring.

She's an example to us all. Imagine how much better the world would be if we lived each day as she did, spreading love everywhere we could, facing challenges with our strengths in mind, not our weaknesses, trying to make the most of even the worst situations.

Thank you for posting this.

The Dreamer's Manifesto

Mike Malloy, a voice of reason in a world gone mad.

"You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." - Inception

"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy **** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off." - Tyler Durden

I need to remember this. There are a lot of stories like this that I need to remember, and not let them get drowned out by the noise of day-to-day life.

Thanks for posting.
