I am so sorry for your loss. Paul is now in heaven playing music for everyone there. May God take away your sorrow and turn it to joy for Pauls life he had here. He made his mark and did his duties here on earth. I will say a prayer for his family and friends.

Don't know of him, but he's obviously young. Cancer is a horrible end at any age but I hate to see someone's life cut short like that.

Please, please explain what purpose "outrage" would serve...exactly what would be accomplished in your opinion???? Many humans abuse their bodies with things that cause cancer, i.e. cigarettes and potent illegal drugs; however many humans take prescribed medications to fix one ailment only to create another, with cancer being a side-effect of some medications. Many food items we consume are packaged in plastic which supposedly harbors carcinogens. The air is dirty with every fume imaginable, especially exhaust fumes, but where would we be without transportation. Bath and beauty products are ladened with chemicals. The soil is contaminated in many areas. Municipal water supplies are ladened with chemicals. In other words, carcinogens are everywhere and cancer does not discriminate. If we were forced to live in a bubble, the material from which the bubble is manufactured would likely give us some nasty ailment in the long run. So, again, what pray tell would being "outraged" accomplish?

Your statement is correct. However, we can all be totally outraged by CANCER. We as individuals cant abstain from living in a modern society. We cannot make ourselves immune to exposure to so many contaminants but we can still cry when we know that someone whom we love or is loved by someone else or simply lives--has been struck by this terrible disease. I lost my best friend 2 years ago to cancer. Yes, most of his life he did smoke and he always enjoyed a glass or two of whiskey at night but he certainly didn't deserve to die of cancer. I lost my aunt to cancer at 44 years old. She never smoked nor drank and lead a very very simple quiet life. So we never know when it will strike. CANCER OUTRAGES ME. YES IT DOES.
