If you're a fan of this TV show:
Chances are you know this guy:
There are days when you go to sleep one night thinking all is right in the world, and then, you wake up and someone has died.
I started becoming a fan of Spartacus: Blood and Sand fairly late in the game. To be honest, I began watching the series over the summer. I heard that Andy Whitfield, who plays Spartacus in the series, was sick and had to leave the show, but I didn't think that a mere 18 months later he'd be dead at 39 of lymphoma.
What do I take away from this?
The cliche: time is short and it flies by just like that.
And the not to cliche: even people who you think are super healthy get really sick.
Hug your loved ones. Tell them you appreciate them for who they are. Because tomorrow, you don't know if they will still be there to hug you back.
So, good-bye Andy Whitfield. I'm sure you find yourself in the fields of Elysium now.
