The Inevitability Of Death
A death in the family is a tough thing to go through. Even when someone you care about has been sick for a long time and given a grim prognosis, the finality of death is still very difficult to come to terms with.
Even though I was baptized as a Catholic Christian, I don’t fully accept the concept of an afterlife. I am, largely, a man of science… of what can be proven. This leads me to believe in the here and now as being what is important. I believe in the time that we have as being finite and valuable and to be enjoyed.
When someone passes, it causes me to return to these thoughts and consider if I am doing that; enjoying life to its fullest. Because I know there are no second chances.
