Death

The Mexican people celebrate death on November 2nd called Dia de los Muertos, “Day of the Dead” with festivities for all. Why almost everywhere else, death is so feared? Why is it common for people to fear the most common occurrence in this world? Where does this fear resonate from? So many questions that can’t simply be answered in a google search. I don’t fear death, yet I don’t want to cause unneeded suffering and despair to my family members and the small group of people I can call friends. Maybe one day, if I outlive them, I can go by choice instead of playing this long waiting game we call ‘age’; finally be free from this suffering. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy spending time with friends and family, and saying I don’t care about them, but my wish still stands.
