>The promise of death

> Death is a funny thing. The only thing I can think of relating to it now is a pun. Why, I have no idea.
I remember when Benazir died, everyone was full of praise for her. Seemed like death had brought everything good in her which people never saw when she was alive.

But other times its just the opposite. We enjoy things more because we know that it has to end one day and will never occur again. The “one in a lifetime”. You enjoy it because you know its going to end and will never come again. As the most intelligent creatures of nature its even funnier how stupid we behave in certain matters, like our attitude towards death. How foolishly we just  ignore the inevitable.

We think if we live long enough our life will be better. Throw away and ignore all the good that we already have, get busy in preserving our future, while we let the present be ignored. In our foolishness we ignore our “once in a lifetime”.
 Death doesn’t take away life. Well, technically it does. But death is also the flip side of life. It is what gives life to life itself, in the promise that it is going to end one day. Death is there to remind us that we should savour our lives because one day it will all be gone. People who forget death, forget to live.
