When you're a young person, it's so easy to think that you will be around forever. But history shows that even young people can go away, and without warning.
Any Nascar fan knows the tragedies. Dale Earnhardt. Kenny Irwin. Adam Petty. All were tragedies. Some don't remember Neil Bonnett or Davey Allison. Some don't remember Alan Kulwicki. All those were tragedies too.
Life is such a fleeting thing. It can be taken from us literally in a heartbeat.
Take life seriously. Don't take one minute of it as a joke or a time to just sit back and relax. Make the most of your life to the ones that care about you and the ones you love. You may never have the chance again.
Life is for living. Go live while you can.
