All it takes is five seconds, and it can change your whole perspective about the word "Death". Last May a
good friend of mine died, after falling off a bicycle. I couldn\'t comprehend the fact that he was dead for a
few hours after my father told me. It seemed to me that just a moment ago I was playing basketball with
him. He was only twelve but I knew him since he was very young. Actually he was almost a best friend to
me. After his accident he was rushed to the hospital with a coma. Then after two weeks all his organs
eventually failed. I was so naÔve. During the time he was in the hospital, I always told myself that he was
going to be all right and he was going to be out of there in no time. But I was wrong, and I learned that life
wasn\'t like that and it didn\'t always happen that way.
Having a near death experience myself, my thoughts about death also took a different turn. I never thought
death would even come near me. Last year in May, my sister, dad, and I were driving down to California.
And it was about seven o\'clock in the morning and my sister was driving. Then she fell asleep and starting
driving off the road. She swerved back on the road really hard, which made the car flip over four times.
Then we were rushed to the hospital and stayed there for about an hour. My sister and I were all right but
my dad was in critical condition. My dad ended up only loosing his pinky finger. Just being in that
situation made my outlook on life and death different. I couldn\'t bear the fact that my dad would be gone
forever. Being a Christian I was brought up to believe that people who believe in Jesus Christ would have
a greater destiny in heaven. But in these two situations with death, I wasn\'t able to think about them being
gone and in heaven. I only !
thought about them being gone period.
Watching all the hurts and tears that people shed during my friends death made me think about
how death can be such an impact on peoples lives. People do not take death lightly. Their emotions and
thoughts take a big twist and a lot of questions go through their thoughts like "What if that were my son"?
Or "What if that was me"? Also regrets start creeping into peoples minds especially the parents. I started
to regret not spending enough time with him and not being a good enough friend with him before he was
gone. And I\'m sure the parents also had familiar regrets. And now that that person is gone, there will
always be a piece of my thoughts missing. There are thoughts that I had that were so repetitive and
thoughts that I had so often that involved my friend. And now I have to change those thoughts and adjust
them into thoughts that I would have of him not being around and gone forever. Having a close friend die
also will force anybody to make changes in their lif!
e, in their thoughts and in there every day act of living.
This experience with death also made me have a sentimental attitude towards people that I don\'t
even know, that have died. For instance, when I watch the news and someone has died, I usually just feel
sorry for a few minutes and forget about it. But now I can relate to the families and friends of the person
that had past away. Just a few days ago a very important man in my church died from cancer. He was also
my principle in grade school. They announced his death Sunday morning during the church service. I
again got to watch many people weep and mourn over this great man of stature. I got to see some friends
of mine cry that I had never seen cry before. Which is another example how death can totally flip anyone\'s
In conclusion, death is never easy to deal with. And death is something that you cannot help. If anyone
close to you is ever
