Q1: Why does a nail have a sharp point?
A1: To concentrate the force applied by a hammer onto a small surface area. This concentration of the applied force allows a nail to penetrate a wall.
Why do some leave this earth too soon?
To make a difference to so many others, a longer life may not be sustainable. Some gifts are simply too strong to use any longer they are. Some charisma and glow and love can’t be sustained for 80 years. Or 50, 40, or 30.
In Lauren Hill’s case, her message and energy wasn’t meant to be here for 20.
Maybe it wasn’t cancer…
If people that inspire us to live, think, and react differently to the world have to pass on sooner than we want them to, maybe it’s a phenomenon we just can’t comprehend. Maybe the cancer had something to do with her passing but what if it was just a cover for what really happened. Her body realized that she could make a difference but there had to be a catalyst. Cancer chose her because the world, every cell in her body, God, whatever, knew she could handle it. Not just the pain and suffering but the ability to raise up and inspire with what was always within her her whole life.

Let’s assume Lauren is the nail and the sharp point are the years of her life. The less years lived, the sharper the point. Maybe an 80 year olds point is dull, or even flat.
The force is the energy, love, charisma, energy, positivity, and inspiration she was born to share with the world.
Really, she couldn’t have lived any longer to inspire more. She was too special. Just like you.
This was written in memory of and for anyone who has lost a loved one from something before they should have. My dad was given three months to live because of cancer when he was in his early twenties and has been my inspiration for a lifetime as a cancer survivor. I know Lauren’s legacy will inspire great things from great people.
Rest In Peace Lauren
