Mandela, Walker, Et. Al

“Your time may come. Do not be too sad, Sam. You cannot be always torn in two. You will have to be one and whole, for many years. You have so much to enjoy and to be, and to do.” 
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Return of the King

Paul Walker passed away too soon last November 23. Last night, December 5th, Mr. Mandela, the champion of anti-apartheid in Africa met  his Maker. 

I'm sad. Really sad. 

And recently I got papers from my esteemed Rockstar writers that they are quitting. 

I'm sad. Really sad. 

What's with the leaving? I understand, but I don't understand. Good people die young. Good employees go. I hate to see them leave, but I have no choice but to move on. Life is really like that. 

People come. People go. And one day, we will all go. 

I'm sad. Really sad.
