The Meaning of Life

It has taken me some time to digest the tragedy that took place at Virginia Tech earlier this week. My heartfelt condolences goes out to the victims, the survivors and the families of all. This tragic event gives me pause, as I hope it does us all.

What is the meaning of life? Those young people were studying to be and do something that only they could be and do in this world. Yet, their lights were snuffed out so violently. Because we do not know the time or place that will be our last moment, we ought to live our lives to the full, on purpose. We are not here to live randomly, but to add value to all that we encounter, thus adding value to ourselves.

Let this tragedy not be in vain; let the deaths of those victims not be in vain. But be a lesson to us all. Live life with passion, on purpose, and in peace.

Life is short, live it on purpose!
