1Life is something that is never supposed to be played with. Life is so precious that we have to understand that our life was given to us by The Creator. When I think of life, it's always about living that life in a beautiful way. Life is about respecting one another in whatever capacity we live in in this world. It's all about total respect for each other and our individual lives.
