MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

“We cannot truly face life until we face the fact that it will be taken away from us.”              -Billy Graham

TOM BROKAW REPORTS DEATH OF TIM RUSSERT  *******I’m showcasing this video because it is about the sudden death of Tim Russert, the host of “Meet the Press”.  He died of a heart attack while at work in the studio June 13, 2008.  He had been diagnosed with asymptomatic coronary disease months prior, but was taking medication and seemed to be doing just fine.  He was only 58 and this was quite a shock to his family, friends, colleagues and fans. For more on Tim Russert, view this article: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25145431/.   We all know our lives are not permanent, therefore, we must do our best to live each moment as if it could be our very last.   Live, laugh and love!!!  :)*******
