the finality of life
going through life, a person makes hundreds of decisions a day. What to eat, what to wear, where to go, what to do. Those are the easy choices. Then come the more complicated ones. Who do i date? Where am i going with my job? The good thing with life decisions is that they're always reversible. There is ALWAYS a second chance. Pretty much no matter what you do, you can make ammends, you can apologize, you can try again. Crash your car? A visit to the chiropractor, the repair shop, and maybe a ticket and your back on your feet. Mess up in a relationship? You can make it better, you just have to want to. Go to jail for embezzlement? Even the corrections system lets you out after a while. Life is quite forgiving in pretty much all circumstances. With one exception.

Death.

That's the end of the road. The no turning back sign is flashing bright and clear. Kicking the bucket. The all in end all. When you take someones life, you can't turn back. You've made the only choice with no possible return.
The deed is done.
When you take your own life, you give up on every chance you never took. The chance to make it all right.

This is an ode to those who are no longer here.
I guess that's what makes living so important. You have only one life. live it to the fullest.
And let others do the same.

In the world to come, you shall not be asked, "Why were you not Moses or John the Baptist?"
You shall be asked, "Why were you not you?"

To answer your question, not exactly. In the world to come, you shall be asked, "Why were you not trying to be like Moses or John the Baptist?"
