Letter to the Editor Caller Times - LET KATIE LIVE

Let Katie live

Time as we know it can change in a heartbeat. When a life-threatening illness unfortunately happens, time becomes not an infinite given, but a real hourglass that measures life's moments. Value is given to the few years, months, days, and hours that allow us to live, love and laugh in this realm of existence. For this can change in a split second of time; reflect on the "quality" of time and not the "quantity."

This is a thought of hope for those who are battling disease in life-limiting form. Give every opportunity for families, friends to share love and laughter while they can. I pray for this especially for Katie Wernecke, and others involved in her plight. Allow her to live and love with those who love her; she needs her family. In the continuum of time, it is of what matters most.
