Life is something that for some reason we were all chosen for. Some believe there is no reason for it and others look to religion, to science. Piecing life together can take years and possibly the entire time you get to experience it, some days darker than others, and some not. Once upon a time a man told me while I was walking through the deserted halls of my high school, “No matter what you do, just make sure you do what’s right in the end.” I’ll never forget that moment. It wasn’t until today that I remembered this thing I had placed in the back of my mind and thought of every now and then, but didn’t prioritize. For some reason, you never do quite appreciate the smaller things in life until something terrible happens. I am baffled at how long it took me to understand that advice. I passed it on as a kind gesture when I should have been punished. Sometimes the smallest of things can make the biggest impact. That man noted I was a smarter kid, doing well when I wanted to, never arguing with anyone but always floating my own way. He believed that I knew what I was doing. Sometimes the world can be unfair and take life away from those that deserve to see more of the world, that treat people with respect, that would help anyone who needed it. Life is beautiful, but life is also very short. It should never be taken for granted.
