I think the purpose of life is to make it better for the people we love and the people we serve. This is not always easy. It's a mission that requires commitment, courage and a willingness to step out of comfort and into the lives of the people who need what we have to give. Life is, as the cliché goes, short. Often it's tragically short. "If you are not living on the edge you are taking up too much space. It's not the human walk, it's the human race." If you have something important to do, get on with it now. You have this day. The people who are gone no longer have that choice.
