A life cut short?

Sad to hear of Nelson Mandela's death today though of course it is hard to say it was a surprise. Probably the biggest surprise, given the hardships of his life, is that he lived to 95. He is certainly a man who used his talents to make the world a better place than the one he was born into, which must be a sign of a good life.

I have been dealing with life probably cut short - the 15 year old son of one of my team members had a heart attack yesterday. He was with other people who fortunately knew how to do CPR and did that for more than 20mins till ambulance arrived. News not good, currently in induced coma. Brain damage as yet unknown but likely if he survives. Tough time.
