Sunday afternoon reflections

CHAD HOBBS

Editorial

You never know how a day is going to play out. Today, there has been little to nothing that has went right for me. Backlogs and backfires have stood in my way most of the day. But as, what I thought to be, the final straw broke when I was unable to make it to an interview opportunity with the family of the young lady who tragically lost her life in the accident on the Bypass Friday, I realized that life happens, and I just needed to take a deep breath and be thankful that I’m alive and my family is healthy. We all need to just slow down, take a deep breath and be thankful for the moment because we aren’t guaranteed our next breath. In the last week, I’ve covered the untimely death of a Meade County super fan, David Raley; the tragic death of a 16 year old young lady who had her whole life ahead of her before a split second decision by someone else forced the car she rode in into oncoming traffic; two men that drove down from Louisville and robbed a Dollar Store in broad daylight; and people lost in a meth rut that are cooking and stealing their precious lives away. The world is full of terrible and tragic, but it is also full of joy and hope. I urge you to join me this evening, no matter where you are in life, by turning off the news, turning off your phone, and turning off the world. Instead, turn on some music, fire up your grill and break some bread with those that you love, and thank the Man upstairs for all that you do have. Many of us have forgotten how to get lost in the moment, without distractions, with those we love, and there’s no better time than right now to turn that ship around…before it’s too late!
