Life is sometimes taking for granted by many. Some believe that they are invincible and that death will never come for them at a young age. Truth to the matter, no one knows when their time on this evil planet will end. Several people can argue the fact that we are born already in the process of dying, while others believe we must live before we can die.

Death is like a thief in the middle of the night

Death is like a thief in the middle of the night, the majority of the time, but can happen any time of the day. Death doesn’t discriminate. It comes after the young, the old, white, black, Christians, Muslims, it doesn’t matter where you are in the world death will come when it’s time. 

I have never been the type of person that took the death of a loved one easily. I sometimes may hide exactly what I am feeling while other times I act out in ways that I shouldn’t. 


Death of a family member

No one wants to get a phone call or a text saying that a family member has passed away. Unfortunately, sometimes family members find out by other ways, either by watching the news or seeing a post about it on Facebook that a loved one died. 



My family is a little complicated to explain the least. I have family members that I have never met in person due to a huge family secret from years ago. So when I found out that I had sisters and brothers younger than me I got excited. 

I found out via Facebook that one of my younger siblings decided he couldn’t handle life on any terms and decided to end his life by hanging. He was only 21, would have been 22 years old this year. That is too young to give up on life. So now a family is in mourning and hurting over the pain that is left behind. Suicide is never the answer to anything.
