As the year ends, you get to hear people making thanksgiving statements.
They dwell on how it is good to have completed a calendar cycle alive and not yet dead.
I want to disagree a little bit.
I think while that idea of thanksgiving is good but those who have passed on within that year
shouldn’t be seen as losers.
You could be alive for years but miserable and utterly useless to yourself and the society.
Whereas, a few who have passed on but lived a more meaningful life
regardless of the years they were with us; old or young.
So the lesson there for our annual acts of praise is to have a rethink
about the importance of how to serve our purpose on this planet.
Everybody will go someday.
It is a purposeful lived life that matters.
