If there is one thing that always have hurter me, it is the notion that the loved ones who passed away did not actually had a life.
Have no worries about such things. They lived according to their wishes and desires, not yours. Nobody dies, so try and get some sleep, it's late somewhere.

Although i'm not quite old, some loved ones have died.
It is normal for the children to bury their parents one day, but fate plays a part in life to.
I'm sure there are many on ATS who have lost their loved ones in life, for me this is how it is.
But there are a few loved ones of which i know that they were always thinking about later, not actually living the joy of life.
But for some there is no later, that the inevitable moment of death will one day catch us is a certainty, but nobody knows when.
Spending a whole life to prepare for the old age, no joy, working and saving, and between work and sleep the usual social struggle about politics, economics, religion, seeking for what one misses in life, the sparkle of joy.
Can we actually say we are alive if we merely are what has been, the known, do we ever see or feel new, free from the known, bursting of passion because in that freedom, the creative flower grows.

No joy, only hope, which is the second soul of people, happiness was always somewhere out there, in material wealth and possession, a woman or man, or some spiritual goal or an ideal place to live.
Religion is a massive brainwashing technique designed to make people give up their free will.
'Together we stand, divided we fall' belongs the the old world, the new world is one of make believe, not real.
If that falls away, i'll bet there's a world of hurt because of emptiness.

Pretty sure most of us are Walking Dead.
They have ceded real life to texting and the internet. Instead of enjoying dinner with friends they take pics of the food and selfies. They let twitter tell them what's important or what to get passionate about. They are more concerned with 200 FB friends than their own neighbors.
So yeah, dead.
