They say history repeats itself, a wise man once said “We are not makers of history. We are made by history.”-Martin Luther King Jr. “Violent men have not been known in history to die to a man. They die up to a point.”-Gandhi
The UN Population Division says there was an increase of population from 6.512.276.000 (2005) to 6.908.688.000 (2010). And it is estimated that approximately 250,000 to 300,000 people die each day.
A life can be taken at any moment, rather it be from a horrible tragedy or by old age. Birth comes in to take the place of the life that was just lost, it is as if the people who survive the horrible accident are stronger and must now create their own generation of them. Family’s can start so fast and many times at early ages. But death is something we cannot stop. We can treat, stitch, slice you open and give you a brand new heart, yet you will have to die some day. It is as if we live to die.
We are all apart of the next generation. Whoever is alive is witness to the deaths in the last generation, yet they will never leave you because you will forever have the death of that relative or anyone you knew who died. We are what this country depends on while we are alive, but when you’re dead the only thing you have left is a bed in the mud under the funeral grounds.
