Yesterday, the three year old son of a friend of a friend died. He was electrocuted on New Year’s Eve while chasing a ball.
A massive effort was undertaken on Facebook. People from all over prayed for his safety and held candle light vigils in his honor. In the end, his injuries were too severe and he could not recover.
Even though I did not know this little boy, I am saddened beyond words. This is a quick reminder to hug your babies! Fiercely – to quote several friends of mine. There are no guarantees in life. We are here such a short while. While we want to believe that everything will always be ok, sometimes it’s not.
Treasure your babies. Love them. Give them extra hugs and kisses. Today and every day.
Rest in peace Nakoa Moonhawk. Even though I never met you in person, you have touched my life in a profound way. Blessings and peace to your family. May they treasure your memory and recover from your loss.
