One of the things the Upheaval taught me was to communicate. Since every day could be the last you see someone, make sure you don't leave anything unsaid. Don't think you have an abundance of tomorrows, when today might be the last one. Too many times we heard of friends dying and wish we had just one more minute to say what we needed to say.
Sometimes I take for granted that people know how I feel, and I have always been one to let my actions speak louder than words. But words are a comfort, and if I'm on the back end of a defensive maneuver that sees me back to back with Charlie or Tommy or Duncan fighting for my life and theirs, you'd better believe I'm going to be grateful I've said what I needed to .
Don't wait. The only questions you shoudl have going into that long sleep are what's on the other side.
