Life is a great surprise I do not see why death should not be an even greater one “Everyone knows they’re going to die… but nobody believes it. If we did, we would do things differently….There’s a better approach. To know you’re going to die, and to be prepared for it at any time. That’s better. That way you can actually be more involved in your life while you’re living.” (Albom 82).

Life is often thought of as the first start and a new beginning. A young child is like a mere bud in bloom. Just as the color white is pure and unmarked, so is life. In stark contrast to this is the concept of death, which is essentially the end of a chapter and the ceasing of existence. Black, the lack...
