THIS IS JENNIFER RIORDAN

This is Jennifer.

Jennifer died yesterday onboard a Southwest Airlines flight. A random failure caused an engine to explode and as the shrapnel hit the plane, a window was smashed and she was sucked out. Passengers scrambled to pull her back in but her injuries were too severe and tragically, she passed away.

I am pretty sure Jennifer, nor the pilot, nor any of the passengers, were expecting such a freak incident to occur. I am pretty sure that Jennifer left the house in a flurry and embarked upon another day, clueless that this would be her last.

I would like us all to take a moment to honour her life and to wish her eternal rest and peace.

I would also like to use her story as a reminder to us all – of just how much of a gift, each day on this planet is – and how we just never know when that gift will be taken back.

Jennifer was a mother to two children.

Jennifer will be sorely missed and never forgotten.

Did Jennifer live her last day on this planet to the full? Did she say all the words she wanted to? Did she leave knowing she had made the most of the beauty we are shown on this earth? The love we are awarded? The joy we can create?

We do not know Jennifer, so we cannot and should not speculate – but I am guessing that none of us really do – we are just too busy. It is simply the fast and furious pace of this modern life we live.

Until tragic stories like this come along and remind us that we should, that we must.

So, please, be reminded.

Life is short.

Time is a gift.

None of us can control it.

Use it wisely.

A rough day, is still a day in which you are alive.

Live it.

Ladies, Pass It On.

Jennifer, may your beautiful soul rest in peace and may some comfort be brought to your loved ones at this terrible time.
