AFTER I’M GONE…

Question:

Why do we wait until after someone dies to tell the world what we thought of them?

Another Question:

Why do we wait until someone is dead to express (to them) how we feel about them?

I think about these questions whenever someone of prominence passes away, and we hear all their former colleagues, friends and family members talking about what an amazing, kind, brilliant, etc. etc. person they were.

The death of a true American patriot, Elijah Cummings, this week, brings these questions to mind once again.

Lesson: 

Don’t wait.

Tell the world now.

Tell that person now.
