The Brightest Flame Burns Quickest

Lorena Rojas was an amazing actress, singer, mom, and person.

Throughout her career, Lorena was referred by those she worked with as a confident yet compassionate person, always ready with a smile and a word of encouragement.

This attitude is one of the reasons I loved her so much.

So many people reserve their words of love and encouragement for when things have already fallen apart (if they speak at all).

This kind of thinking is shortsighted at best, since we haven’t been promised a tomorrow. It might be presumptuous of me to say (since no one can really know) but I think if we asked people that have passed on how they would spend one more day on earth, we might be surprised at their answer.

I imagine that the overwhelming majority would say that they would take the time to tell their family, spouses, neighbors and colleagues and others just how much they meant to them. That they would use the opportunity to encourage and hopefully strengthen those they have left behind.

This is the kind of thing I imagine Lorena Rojas would do if we had one more day with her.

She was an inspiration to many, either through her music, her acting or simply being able to call her a friend.
