A Moment of Silence, #932

Standard

It is not very often that I am at a loss for words.  Afterall, that is what I do.  I write every day to express what I’m feeling.  Today is different though.  I am most definitely at a loss.

We learned of some tragic news last night about the passing of a friend who lost his battle with cancer.  Too young, too soon…leaving behind a beautiful wife and two amazing kids.  He was my age, and the pain the family must be going though hits too close to home.  It could have happened to any one us, but cancer this time around struck the kindest and most innocent victims.

There really is not much else to say, so today, the Tucson Songstress is going silent in support of a family who I love dearly.  There is no song of the day.  Instead, please take a moment to appreciate the love you have in your life and to know you should never take advantage of it.

About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
