The fragility of life

"So teach us to number our days,that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom" Psalms 90:12

I was reminded again of the fragility of life.I am sure most everyone has heard about the deadly shooting in Colorado at the midnight premier of the "Dark Night Rises" in which 12 people were killed and numerous were wounded. Reading about it this morning broke my heart and made me realize how here many people were going for a fun entertaining night,they were not doing anything dangerous and yet because of one man's choice,12 of those people did not come out of that theater alive.
I do not personally know any of the people who died in that theater and yet it could of easily have been any of us.I have countless friends who went to see the movie when it opened.Something like this just brings death all the closer. It makes you realize that we need to make each and every day count.
