Rest In Peace, Sarah Burke

I did  not know Sarah Burke, I actually do not know much about her except she was an exceptional canadian freestyler skier whom fought for her sport and won many a gold medals.  It looks and sounds to me she was my type of people.  Happy, excited, compassionate, loving, fun, hardworking, motivated and determined.  She was a friend to many I know.  When I heard the news of her accident, my heart dropped and I could not help but say a little prayer to the universe.  Yesterday Sarah Burke left us.  Today as I scroll through the home page of the 'book and I see the pictures being posted of her tweens, teens and the past, I cannot help but be brought to tears.  A huge loss to all those that knew her, to world of skiing and to the world as we know it.  It would seem to me she had the smile that would light up any room and an energy that could motivate anyone.  My heart and thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time.  Life is short, friends. Live every moment like you mean it.  Do what makes you happy and be with those whom make you happy.  Be true to you and to every moment because it will not last forever.
At my Saturday morning work out I will take a moment and reflect on a woman whom left us to soon.  Rest in peace, Sarah Burke.
