I guess the 72 hours of death and destruction that has been dominating the television airways September 10,11, and 12th had got me in a retrospective mood this morning. As I was waiting to board my flight this morning, part of me was fearful for flying. The odds of a terrorist taking down one of the planes I am flying on is incredibly small but it is always in the back of my mind. The tenth anniversary of Sept 11th happening just two days ago made it that more real this morning. To get my mind off things, I start scrolling through my google reader and I see Dj Mehdi in every blog post.
I had never heard of him. That is such a shame that while he was on this earth he was completely off my radar. I am now listening to this incredible banging mix that Mad Decent released today in celebration of his life. I will never hear a new Dj Mehdi mix again. His fans will never feel his passion and see his infectious smile from behind the turn tables.
From all accounts I have read, his death was a freak accident when he fell off his own roof last night. You can’t control when your time has run out on this earth. Life is too short to worry about things you cannot control like your fate. This weekend reminded me how important it is to cherish every moment that you have. This tragic news today reaffirms that message.
My heart goes out to Mehdi Favris-Essadi’s family and friends.
