The dead are many; the living are few.
Death is the great equalizer. It is a return to nature. Be gracious and polite towards death. Words are the only thing that live forever. The nature of beings is to die. Mortals have the option of death. At least there is an escape. In death all that matters is your legacy. Life is a magical yet risky endeavor. It is not your body. It is a temporary gift from nature. Too many people I have known crossed over too young to car accidents, suicide, epilepsy and drugs. Bless their souls. Life is made of trials. Sometimes you have to reach deep to find meaning in suffering. I would rather suffer the pain of loss than never have known them. So powerful and real are their memories that even in death they are a blessing. Nothing more heartbreaking than losing someone close. A part of you dies with them. Anguish is a hard thing but there is richness and beauty in sadness. They live forever inside of you.
Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; the one who believes in Me will live, even if he diesJohn 11-25
My little brother: I remember the day he was born. It was an honor to watch him grow up. He was such a big part of my life and I have a hard time saying his name. He lost his life far too young at twenty five. The day we lost him was the hardest of my life. His legacy is one of love, peace, wisdom, humanity, respect, hope and kindness. The world is a darker place without him. He’s a remarkable guy! Hug them everyday. RIP Matt Henkin
