LIFE LESSON / by Micaela

I was reading today an obit for a folk singer named Facundo Cabral, who was tragically shot to death in Guatemala. The Huffington Post article included this incredible and heartbreaking quote:

The 74-year-old singer gained notoriety in the early 1970s as a protest singer in Argentina. In 1978 he lost both his wife and infant daughter in a plane crash... In an interview with Associated Press in 2008, he said:

'I love life so much because it cost me so much to enjoy it.  
From the cradle to the grave is a school, 
so if what we call problems are lessons, 
we see life differently.'
