I was watching a show; and someone died. The acting was so convincing, that it got me thinking. Look at us, people roaming this planet, building wonders, destroying others, so powerful, so in control. Then, at death we're frail, helpless things. The thought sends a shiver down my spine.
It's like what my environmental teacher said once, when the weather was not stable (as it kept changing from one extreme to another): as humans, all it takes is an extreme change in nature to wake us up and show us that we're not so dominant as we think.
I believe that that shows us how frail, and precious our lives are.
