I'm not going to comment over the circumstances of the accident other than to say that since the driver of the car was fellow soldier, he's in line for much more severe punishment than had a civilian hit him.
I have no doubt that justice will be served here.
The whole thing also serves as a poignant reminder that this mad dance we call life is a very short one.
We only get so much time here to love, create, help each other, and make this world a better place.
Every day we get is a wondrous gift, and there are no guarantees that we'll get another one. All of us
have our own special gifts and talents that we bring to this world, and we should celebrate
them while we still have time left.
For even the greatest of artists and the mightiest of fighters can be gone before their time.
This swiftly tilting planet offers no guarantees. Waste no time.
And rest in peace, Furp. Although I had seen you at cons before, I never got a chance to meet you, and I wish I had now.
