I have not known him very long but each time we met it was always a spirited and fun discussion, politically we were on opposite ends of the spectrum,
he was a left wing Brit, me an American right wing gun lover.
We would be at a party and the two of us would argue politics all night while getting drunk, then a handshake and a hug and we would stagger off to
go pass out, the next day no rancor, no hate just smiles for the new day.
He was only a few years older than me, saw him posting Friday around lunch on social media and he was dead by sundown, heart attack just as the guy
was getting his life back together.
It really makes you pause and wonder, have I really taken care of the things that truly matter in the world, family, close friends, or have I become
obsessed with the news, and the stupid that has been going on since the earth first started turning, and will continue long after I am dust.
So I guess as I sit here drinking whiskey thinking about my friend, have you told those you hold dear how much you love them, if not please do so.
this weekend when you are getting wrapped up in the minutia instead go out with your loved ones and spend some time with them instead.
