OT- Sarah Burke – An Inspiration.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbour.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
— Mark Twain
The death of Sarah Burke, a Canadian athlete and sports pioneer, raises a lot of questions about life, the pursuit of ones dreams, and the risks one is willing to take in order to achieve them.
29 is so very young, but many have died much younger, for far less than the passionate pursuit of what they love.
I will never question the tragedy of her death, for it was not tragic, it was glorious, and in so an inspiration to us all to remember, no matter the duration, we will all, everyone one of us, die…that does not matter near so much as what we do before that inevitable event.
Thank-you Sarah, for being so full of life, and having the bravery to live it.
