tg, times like these make you realize that there's a big picture to all of our lives, and when trying times such as that happens, ya gotta take a step back and look at the whole thing, as best ya can, just to keep the crappy stuff in perspective.
sadly, we all die, and hopefully someone hears our last words. remind him it's just part of a cycle, as his life will be someday, and not to waste a second of it.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose. The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder where the fair wind blows.
