What are some good examples of “Life isn’t fair”?

Rona Ramon was the wife of the first Israeli astronaut Ilan Ramon. She met Ilan when she was only 16, and at the age of 22 they were already married and had 4 children.

Ilan was very successful in the Israeli Air Force as a fighter, with thousands of hours of flying experience. He was then selected as a Payload Specialist designated to train as prime for a NASA space shuttle mission. Rona and Ilan’s life seemed to get as perfect as it could.

Asaf Ramon admired his father and like father like son he became a fighter pilot in the Israeli Air Force. But this story doesn’t have a happy end either.

He died on September 13, 2009, aged 21, during a routine training flight while piloting his F-16A.

Rona didn’t let herself fall into depression. She established The Ramon Foundation, that aims to ignite the three essential values that Ilan and Asaf Ramon stood for – academic excellence, social leadership, and groundbreaking courage.

And yet, this story always reminds me that sometimes life just isn’t fair.
