You see it on the news again and again. A husband, distraught over losing his job or being outed for securities fraud, takes his own life and sometimes the life of his wife and children. Since my diagnosis and struggle with cancer, life has become even more precious to me. When you fight so hard for each day of life, it is difficult to accept such a callous disregard for human life! So you lose your job and can’t afford the country club membership anymore. Get over it! Yes, it may be embarrassing. But you can still enjoy a quiet walk on the beach, or your favorite burger, or the embrace of your wife and child. I try to be sympathetic; to not be judgemental. But on this point I find it difficult to compromise. Life is short. Life is precious. I think about that every hour of every day.
So feel good, keep smiling and fight for every breath! Pat
