Pondering

Written by: Robert Pettit

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
