How the actions of one person affect so many - January 14th 2009, 02:57 PM

Today i learnt that a person in school was on life support after a car crash. I am not here to talk about the incident or any of the deatils but to say one thing. How many of you think of how your actions afect others? Do you ever stop to think that maybe it could affect hundrerds of people? Changing there lives in just a split second? Have you ever wondered what your world would be like if you were gone? how would they react? what ever you imagined is wrong becasue death is like the ocean its deep and dark and bigger than all of us. and the pain it brings is like a theif in the night. Quiet. Persistant. Unfair. Diminished by time and love. I did not really knwo this person we just spoke a few times at school yet i can see how there absence has affected those around them.

In a sense its amazing to see how far a person reaches, just how many do you know right now?

life is full of what ifs.... But right now all i know for sure is that forever more i will think how the actions of one person affect so many others. The switch is off now and that person is gone but their memory will live on in the hearts of there friends and family but also in the mind of the person who in one split second destroyed not only one life but affected hundreds.

well actually lately i've thought a lot about death, in particular how my death would affect those who know and love me, having recently been diagnosed with cancer. i guess i've had a glimpse of how many people would be affected by it, simply by the amount of people who have been affected by my diagnosis. life is so very precious and before now i didn't appreciate life like i should have. i'm very sorry to hear about the person in your school, yet the sad thing is, death happens, and all too often to young people who are far too young to die. i agree with you that it is amazing to see how far a person reaches and how many lives a person can touch.

i really liked your post, it's very thought provoking. :]


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
