I had been reading several online articles about the death of Farrah Fawcett when I came across a story about the demise of yet another prominent person – Michael Jackson.
Like the rest of the world, I was really stunned by these events.
But more than that, Fawcett and Jackson also reminded me of how short life is, and that no one is spared from death: rich or poor, famous or unknown, powerful or powerless… all of us will leave the world someday.
So while I’m here, I will strive harder to be the best person that I can be. Life is too short and too precious to be wasted on petty things.
These words from the “King of Pop” himself are a good reminder:
“If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change”
