Get living or get dying -Stepen King
We are a little weird and life is a little weird, so when we find someone who's weirdness is compatible with our own, we fall in a mutual weirdness and call it love. -Dr. Seuss

Car crash.
Two dead high school students.
16 years young.
Roughly one quarter of their life expectancy.

They died before they lived.
And it’s now you realize
How fragile, we as human beings,
Really are.

I don’t pretend to know them,
But I do miss them.
We all miss them.
I only wish they could have lived.

That could’ve been me.
It’s not that hard to get in a car crash.
I could die anytime.
My friends could die anytime.

Life is fragile.
Take care.
Live young.
Die old.
Be happy.
