I've been in a bit of a funk today. There was a funeral in my hometown today. I didn't really know him all that well, but Sean did. He was our very first travel nurse recruiter. He was also the only person in that entire agency Sean liked. The circumstances surrounding his death are just senseless and sad and unpredictable and just...I dunno. I got to thinking about this little girl without a dad and I was imagining his parents sitting through his funeral and it just got to me.
I think about death in terms of soldiers. I think about it with car crashes and cancer. Old people. People in harms way. I don't think about death happening to young, healthy people just living their lives. It's not always a bad thing to be hit in the face with a 2X4 of reality. Death can happen to anyone at any time. Sometimes there isn't time to take your focus off the dailiness and put it where it should be.
