Isn't It Ironic?

In the sad-but-true category, a 73-year-old resident of Elwood, Indiana was hit by a pickup truck and died, just hours after winning $57,000 in the lottery. He would have been eligible to go for the million-dollar prizes in three weeks.

One of my friends had his father suffer a heart attack this past week; while he's apparently going to make a full recovery, the incident reinforced for my friend (and me) the inherent fragility of life. Don't count on getting a second chance--make the most of the one you have now.
