Hey guys and gals, need your prayers/thoughts/positive energies. I found out at work today that one of the guys I founded a music fraternity chapter with had a dad who passed away today. This just 2 months after one of our brothers (who had more fraternal spirit and more enthusiasm for music than anyone i've met) was shot and killed at point blank range while being mugged. We haven't had enough time to heal and now one of our brothers lost a parent. This is hard on both myself and the other brothers of the fraternity as we are a VERY close group of guys. Keep us all in your thoughts and prayers.

EDIT:
more info: he died from brain cancer at 9:30 this morning. He had survived many different types of cancer before this, but this one was his last battle. From what the brother told everyone, he went out fighting till the end, never giving up and being a total trooper about the whole thing.

"...unattachment means enjoying life without attachments. We can party on weekends, but work when it's time to work. We can enjoy material things, but we should not be its slave. We should control our emotions instead of letting our emotions control us. We should learn to enjoy life and its different forms of expression without being attached to them."

It can be so hard to know what to say. My heart is heavy and I pray for peace and serenity for all involved. Senseless shootings and devastating cancers are no match for the Force. Rest assured that they are at peace and whole again in the Force.

My sincerest condolences.

May the Force Bring You Peace.

The Force is not about what you are wanting to achieve, it is about your ability to listen to the Universe, and answer its call!

I am a Jedi, My continuing goal is the balance of all things in life. It is to treat everyone with kindness and compassion.

I do not believe in social tolerance...I believe in mutual respect!
I don't tolerate you, I respect our differences, our similarities, and your right to whatever I have a right to.
