Today’s song of the day doesn’t need a long, drawn out explanation. I grew up in a tight knit neighborhood. Groups of us would get together for late night games of kick the can while our parents, who are still friends, would chat for hours. We’d spend countless hours at Orchardbrook pool playing lemonade and dreading the inevitable 15 minute adult swim that crept its way into every hour.
The other day, this tight knit community lost a 28-year-old member in what was a tragedy broadcast across the city of Chicago. You can find the story and full explanation here. “Gone Too Soon” is self explanatory. My heart is with all of those affected by this loss, and I hope I can continue to attack life with at least half of the ardor Phil did.
