A Bad Thing?

Today a wise woman asked, “Why is death such a bad thing?”  The question wasn’t directed to me, but what a beautiful opportunity to respond here on the blog. 

Surely it has to do with losing control of dreams, personal spontaneity, unwelcomed symptoms to a disease.

Perhaps it has to do with spiritual distress…like a faith crisis. 

The dying process brings various feelings of regret or feelings of loneliness.

Some have unrealistic expectations for a physical body.

Interesting to think that I meet up with these types of life issues daily. 

How would you respond to her question?
