A lot of people associate death with negative connotations. Death is a part of life. Sometimes you need to find the next door to open in your life when the door of death occurs. Nothing lasts forever. People will never understand that death is just something nobody can change.
"To live in the hearts we left behind is not to die"
Being touched and moved by a person who has passed away, only makes their life more able to be rejoiced. You celebrate how you knew that person and what they meant to you. You celebrate all things good, so why can't people take death and turn it into a way of rejoicing someone elses life for what they were and what they stood for?
I lost my cousin September of 2009. Being only 19, I can only grow from situations like this. I never thought that I would lose MY cousin as a murder victim. MINE. I know it happens a lot, and I know that so many television shows shine light on situations like this, but it's never the same until you have to be put through it.
There's a lot of natural disasters and deaths happening lately...It's not at all happy, but people should try and find the good in things and realize that life goes on. Finding faith is a way to get over the pain. I found a new love for God, and it helps me get through things like this.
"the righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart; devout men are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death."
