What is the Value of your life?

Ironic isn't it?February is supposed to be the month of LOVE...happy valentines day everyone who still believes in this tradition..are you one of those people? And what did you get by the way?me? nada!but i don't mind i wasn't expecting anything at all...

But then much for our heart...i am meaning to talk about the value of life because recently i am noticing that too many people are dying for actually useless reasons then again i ask myself why?what is happening to humanity?what is happening to our peaceful city?Do we get to blame the government?blame ourselves?blame the bad guys?blame the system?Just last week my cousin was shot to death by a hold upper whom claimed to be a minor(i don't really know why does he have to shot my cousin) but yeah at that instant his life was taken away from him and leaving behind a daughter, a small son, and a grieving wife..not to mention the heartache of the shocked parents and siblings...then at that very same day a 6 year old girl was abducted killed and thrown away somewhere in Barili...the suspects are now caught a Filipina woman and a Norwegian foreighner...the of course denied their participation of the crime and their attorney said that their alibis are solid and strong...well, whatever would be the outcome of this tragedy it will never ever bring back the life of an innocent child...then again a neighbor of mine died of heart attack because of drug overdose and lack of sleep...what a waste!

So this really keeps me thinking and pondering how quickly life can be taken away from us be it our choice or stolen away from us...and i have this to say to all of you..wherever you are at your life right now....say thank you for the gift of life and treasure those people whom matters to you because life is so unexpected!

" Thank You! " only two ever so simple words but often means so much to us. Yeah, the invaluable Ethnologue quotes 6909 living languages, that’s one language for every 862,000 people on Earth. Thats quite a substantial number so grasp considering there's only 195 countries in the world. We should be more conscious of saying it more often.. Maya Angelo once noted " Thank You! " is the language of the divine because thats what we say in front of God... Maraming Salamat! So don't be afraid, or hesitate to say thank you - to the people who love us the way we are, to the experiences that made happy in life's journey, but also to those experiences that bought us in tears and pain, to the people that hurt us. Because they perhaps they made us stronger, even better along the way - making us live and love a life more than ever.. Not to endorse anything to you but you should check out Boy Abunda cd... " Love Life " you might like it.
