Although not a pleasant thought for most of us - life, as we know it, will one day cease.
We just don't know the day or the time, which is probably a good thing. It is the one event in this world that, without a doubt, will happen. No matter how we try to prolong it, once our time is up, our time is up.
Many of us don't want to think about dying because it puts a whole different perspective on living.
The way I see it, that can be a good thing, though. Well it's a good thing as long as we choose living to live over living to die. There's a difference between living life to the fullest or not bothering because we are going to die anyway.
