If you read here regularly, you probably know that I’m a big hockey fan. It’s easily my favoite sport, and I follow it pretty closely. Needless to say, I’ve been following the story of Dan Snyder this past week, and unfortunately, the story has an even sadder ending, as he died from his injuries yesterday.
In addition to the feelings I have for his family and his teammates, I can’t help but think about what a powerful reminder this is about the fragility of life. One day you are headed home in your teammate’s new Ferrari and he’s racing down the street, enjoying the night, looking forward to the beginning of the season, and the next it’s all gone.
I guess the lesson to be learned is not only to be more careful, but to enjoy what life has to offer today, for tomorrow is not guaranteed to any of us.
