Today is a special day for me and my family. This is the day when my baby brother would have turned 30 years old. Instead he died of cancer 4 ½ years old, I was eight at the time.
People don’t think I remember much but I remember everything like it was yesterday. Even though I was just a child myself I was very aware of the concept of death and I knew my brother was in constant danger. Children understand more than we know sometimes.
It’s days like these that make you think about how precious and fragile life is. Death puts life in other perspective. Things that you thought where important can seem insignificant in a blink of an eye.
Take care of the people around you. Don’t hold grudges and forgive those who have done you wrong. Admit your mistakes and do whatever you can to make up for them. Tell the people that you care for just how much they mean to you. Take changes and live your life the way you want to. Fight for what you believe in, and leave a permanent mark on the hearts of those who are close to you. We only have one chance living this life and you never know how much time you have left so spend it well.
Never forgotten, sorely missed. Happy Birthday Kristian
Much Love from Karianne <3
