It is sadly ironic how it takes horrific events to place things into perspective, but it has. The lessons learned this week, the things we have taken for granted, the things that have been forgotten or overlooked, hopefully will never be forgotten again. In a split second, our world changed forever. 
What is in store for YOU in the next second, the next day??
