21 Nov Khalid’s Corner: Empty Pursuit
Words of wisdom from community leader, Khalid Elahi
In my lifetime I’ve seen more than a few people put money and material value over health and everything else. I’ve watched dudes keep trying to get the money, putting themselves in dangerous situation that will cause them to get killed. Situations that are bad for their health in more than one way.
They put the money over everything.
Not just the money but a lot of times just the thought of getting the money. (Because most of them don’t even get it.)
The truth is, your life is the best thing you’ve got. One comes before two. First health then wealth.
No money trucks will be pulling up to your funeral. You won’t be taking a penny with you when you leave.
The smartest thing you can do is to preserve your life as much as you can, and if you got to give it up, let it be because you were trying to live.
