To Live And Die In The World

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Forever Young.”

All lives are full of good times and bad, sickness and health, having plenty and struggling to get by. All lives encounter highs and lows.

There are two other things that all lives were created for and the American society has argued over both of them within the past year. The right to live (being born) and the right to die (aiding a terminal patient to end their pain). We were born, and we all owe a death. Would I drink from a fountain of youth if given the opportunity? No way!! I love my life. All of its lessons learned, mistakes I have made and high points of success in all manors of life that I have experienced in my thirty-nine years. But would I want them to continue forever? No.

I like the notion of looking forward to an eternity with God and my loved ones who have accepted Christ as their savior and are in Heaven. To see all that this world is becoming and where it is going, no, I do not wish to be forever young to witness how far away from decency and each other we can go.
