Explain it to Me Again

Explain it to Me Again

I have a friend. He has HIV. And cancer. A month ago, he was hospitalized, got pneumonia and came within a millimetre of dying.

Today I got an email from him. This is part of it:

If there is a god, take me now. I'd be fine with it.

Thankfully I've done what I wanted and lived my life with no regret. Through it all, I am comfortable in my own skin.

When I was in Vancouver and I went and saw him, he asked about my mother - she lives in an old folks home - and said that he wanted to bring her and the other people there some clothes.

Even in the state he was, he was thinking of others. What an absolute, golden human being.

So, explain to me again, what, exactly, is so hard in your life that you need to create all of this stress?
