You’ve been asked to speak at your high school alma mater — about the path of life. (Whoa.) Draft the speech.
Life works in stages. Everyone experiences life differently but the inevitable truth is that all living things die. It is not death we should be afraid of but instead fear a life not worth living. Once death comes life becomes easy, the hard part is living and keeping the feeling of life alive.
What happens after death is a matter of faith. But those of the living must accept that only they control their own destiny. As conscious beings, we make a series of choices that lead us from where we currently are to where we want to be. People will join your life and others will leave it, stories will be told and love will be found but in the end we entered this world alone and we will leave it the same.
Spend life exploring and experiencing new things. You never know when your time on this world will be up.
***Life (n): 1 the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death. 2 the existence of an individual human being or animal.
