All losses are not equal.
A loss that occurred due to mismanagement, neglect or elevation is never recovered. Any effort to replace it fails. Any effort to replicate it fails. Any cloning of it fails.
Imagine how the NBA teams felt when they lost Lebron James. To have Lebron and then not have him is a tremendous loss. Any cloning, immitation, or replacement effort for Lebron James is comical.
No one can do what he does for a team.
Imagine how the 5 NBA teams felt that lost Quentin Richardson.
Wisdom knows the difference between wheat and tare. A Lebron and a Quentin.
Some losses are losses. Others are devastations.
