The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

Any kid that grew up in the ’90s has surely not only seen, but also absolutely loved Space Jam.  Chances are too that you’ve been wondering why they’ve never come out with a sequel, like many other epic nostalgic movies.

Well, in a recent tweet by skateboard legend Tony Hawk, he actually revealed that back in 2003, a sequel almost happened, and he was supposed to star in it. That was of course much before the 2019 sequel started to go into the works, and it was supposed to be called Skate Jam. 

Hawk reveals that due to the Looney Tunes Back in Action,  being discussed right around the same time, Warner Brothers put the skateboard project aside and the idea of Skate Jam was gone forever.  Although we of course adore the Looney Tunes too, it was never quite as popular as the basketball movie.

Well, the upcoming sequel of the movie was already feels like it was worth waiting the 23 years for, but due to Hawks tweet, we are still feeling super curious as to what could have been…..
