Can somebody give me a true definition of life? A human being is just one of many different organisms that inhabit this planet commonly known as earth. We exist among many other members within our species. What are we to accomplish during our time here? Do our peers often expect an unreasonable amount of value? Where is the line drawn between success and failure? How do we deal with disappointment? We hope for success, but can we cope with failure? Progress and meeting deadlines seems to be the gist of life. This makes me question the existence of true freedom. Is the end of life truly a loss? Perhaps it may be relief from burdens and responsibilities. November 3, 2012

    Robert; This is a very good write with some very interesting questions. I like your last sentance. When we die all the responsibilities end, at least here on earth. I think that we have to take life as it comes and try to live the best way we can. No matter what we do we'll never be perfect. Lucilla
