An Unexpected Loss and a Gentle Reminder

Naman Shah

Ear­lier this month we lost one of our beloved stu­dents, Naman Shah, to an untimely death at the age of 21. His short life reminds me of a some­thing I read long ago, that given a choice between a life of com­fort and a life of mean­ing, the wise per­son will choose the lat­ter. We too often hear of unnec­es­sary and pre­ma­ture deaths in the world, in fact we’ve all seen the sta­tis­tic that sev­eral thou­sand chil­dren die need­lessly each day from poverty and dis­ease. Every life mat­ters, and yet when it’s some­one you know, whose path crossed yours, the idea of a sense­less death in the face of such promise is that much more powerful.
