Will to Live

How in the world can a human being have an insatiable desire to live when in the midst of horrendous disease processes?  The supernatural drive to press through limitations, pain, fatigue and humility is amazing to observe.

Watching the families who live along side of a person with an unusual will to live also is amazing.  They usually get just as fatigued and have strong emotional fluctuations anticipating the inevitable.

The part that is so great to anticipate is how this Will to Live, this supernatural energy will be a part of a person’s legacy.  Stories will be told, probably with humorous exaggeration and hopefully the sadness and fear will have been washed away.
