I will admit that I never expected to be inspired to write a blog post by radio talk show host Bob Lonsberry. He and I differ on politics, but there are times when he talks that I stop and go, "hhmmmm," and the other day was one of those times. I admit that the radio is on as background noise so I am not always the best listener.
While I can't remember what started his whole conversation I believe it might have been the senseless death of a bicycle rider in Fairport by two alleged drunk drivers -- one on a motorcycle and one in a van. He talked about the woman, who had been a wife, mother, and teacher in the Fairport School District and then went on to say how -- in essence -- we need to count our blessings every day because you just never know when you won't be around to count them any longer.
