You guys take heed. Not everyone you know will make it to 40. You’ll lose more by 50. Life is short. Make the most of it.
Since I'm still in my existential phase it certainly does make you think. I realize as you get older there's a lot more of what you mentioned.

Same here, class mate died in an IED explosion for Operation Iraq Freedom and another in Afghan. More than 90% of the deaths I know were all violent deaths. Only one passed away from natural causes.
Life is precious.
