Death

…..is a very taboo term.

Even though  one person commits suicide about every 40 seconds, one person is murdered every 60 seconds and one person dies in armed conflict every 100 seconds,

it isn’t talked about much among the masses. Not even in everyday conversations.

Think about it, do you talk to people about death in everyday conversation?

I would guess not. But with the deaths of Bowie, Ali, and Prince, it’s popping up in newscasts all over the world. The people you look up to aren’t so invincible as you thought.

They die too.

There is no sugarcoating it.

The circle of life is like a Ferris wheel. People go on and people go off, but it just keeps on going, not stopping for anyone. In 1 year  6 months we will remember them but they will be in the back burn of our minds. We would rather know who divorced who or what Trump did.

But we won’t learn from it.

We make the same choices even after a death to the person you hate or your best friend. Unlike us, plants cherish and build on the other plants that die. They use that energy that plant once had to build new generations.

You don’t have to talk about death, just understand it.
