Our fingertips don't fade...


"Our fingertips don't fade from the lives we touch." - "Remember Me"

I love this quote. I've always believed this. I hate to hear stories of suicides because you immediately think of the family and friends that person left behind. How those people must feel. How these people felt insignificant and like their lives didn't even matter in the big picture of things. Well, truthfully, in the "big picture" of things...our lives don't really matter. Us. One single person on this huge planet. But in your world, you matter. In the "big picture" of your life, you matter. Loving one person and touching their life is enough of an accomplishment to be remembered after you are long gone. Perhaps we won't all be like Michael Jackson or Heath Ledger, these famous people whose lives will be remembered for years and years by millions of people. But being remembered by one person is enough.

Which is why the people in your life are the most important part. As a society we tend to put our jobs or other things ahead of those who love us. We forget to make people a priority. Because your job definitely won't miss you 50 years from now, but your parents will. Your friends will. So be good to these people and treat them as you should. You won't regret it, I promise.

Definitely don't forget to enter my second contest!
