I was very shocked and saddened to hear of Tim Russert's passing. He was an eloquent newsman, and even though I didn't know him personally, I had tremendous respect for him. I try not to get too worked up over celebrities dying, but it's hard not to be stunned when it happens.

Life is precious, no one is immortal, and as difficult as it is sometimes, we need to make every moment count.
