When did you first realize that life is short?

I realized that life is short when I attended a funeral of two young friends. The first was a 23 year old girl from my high school and the other was a 27 year old guy. It was a unforeseen death that left countless individuals heartbroken. I cannot begin to imagine what their close friends and families are going through. I wish them all the strength to get through this hard time and realize that heaven has gained an angel. They are now looking down on us and giving us strength to move forward. They would love for us to remember the goods times and to cherish every moment. 

They both lived life to the fullest and had future plans that were cut short. Life is short and none of us know when our time will come to an end. That being said, we should all live life to the fullest, take risks and tell the people in our life how much we love them. “Life is too short to leave any important words unsaid.”
