When you look at Danny’s picture, I’m sure you see a handsome young man, full of youthful innocence with a bright future – the typical “boy next door”. He was all that, plus an incredibly smart, caring, witty individual with an amazing sense of humor. To know him was to love him, and he had an extremely unique outlook on life.
What you don’t see is the pain and struggle he lived with for years, and the demons he battled every day. He loved life, was looking forward to many tomorrows, and was making plans for the future. But in the end, the demons won, and a beautiful life was cut short…just like so many others we all hear about in today’s news.
So, please – love fully, smile, and be kind to others. Don’t judge too harshly or too quickly, as you never know what issues people are facing or what struggles they may be dealing with…a kind word or gesture and a smile can go a very long way.
