RIP Prince Philip

The British royal family has announced that Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, passed away this morning. Philip was 99, only two months from achieving his 100th birthday. His wife of 73 years, Queen Elizabeth II, has a habit of congratulating her subjects with a personal letter on their 100th birthday. In discussing the prince's death, reddit poet Poem_for_your_sprog said:

She looked at the message
she'd crafted and penned -
A letter to Philip
that she'd never send.

-via reddit

99 years that's a long time. I read a youtube comment once that always stuck with me relating to life. "Life is not short - it's the longest thing you'll ever do". So true. Next time someone tries to tell you "Life is Short" like it's some profound thing to say. Tell them that quote :)
