Death Good for the Dead Bad for the Dying and Worse for Those It Leaves Behind My whole life death has been a distant thing to me It is not even really a thing but more of an idea I have heard about death millions of times with the media Everyday in the news people are dying left and right with disease in the foreign countries famine in distant lands and even murder in the suburbs I even heard about it a few times from my friends when they told me about their recent loses With all of these stories of tragedy and awful accidents I never felt any emotion The news reporters sympathy for these victims was not convincing enough to make me think that something tragic had happened or my elementary school friend did not understand the situation himself in order to feel pain If something was truly awful about the story it was too far away for me to consider it a reality When I was about eight years old I experienced the first death in my family My fathers sister had died and my he got a call soon after I was in the room when the phone rang and my dad answered the phone He first sounded excited to hear the voice on the other end but that happiness soon turned to devastation His only sister had passed away and he began to cry My father is not a crying man and he soon regained his composure and finished the conversation He was able to put his sadness aside and tend to business This was a very small event but it had a large impact on me and helped shape my ideas about the idea of death The way that I saw my father handle this so-called tragedy gave me the impression that life was almost like a movie What goes on in the movie might be sad
