    I Remember When Nobody Would Shut Up And Stop Worrying About It

    My Uncle Died.

    My uncle was killed from swine flu at the age of 38. I don't want any sympathy I just want you guys to know that it happens. And it can happen to anybody. I dearly miss my uncle and curse swine flu. I have been lucky enough to not get it myself. But you never know.
