Any Man’s Death…
“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.”
― John Donne, No Man Is An Island
Sometimes it feels that the world gets smaller each time a person’s life is lost. I appreciate that it’s human to feel a twinge of sadness even if you didn’t know the person. Even if you knew someone that knew the person, it should render us at least sympathetic.
Then sometimes we go for a while and the memory gets less. Maybe we should pledge to never let the memory become so vague it walks out of our thoughts.
ALWAYS ANXIOUS TO READ YOUR ITEMS AND OF COURSE TO LISTEN TO THE SONGS. LIFE IS A PRECIOUS THING SO DO THE BEST EACH DAY
Vaness, Gene Watson sure has it right in his song “Walk with me through this world, that’s what I like about Gene’s songs, they are so down to earth, and the life we live, sure gives you a lot to think about , and many there are that need some to walk with them !!
