Many people can't stand it when I hit them smack in the face with some of the realities that faces us all, the biggest one is the fact that we all must die and return to dust. It's funny how most people go around in a self-created fantasy world where they are in some kind of a plastic bubble that protects them from the rest of the world. Where anything bad only happens to those less privileged, less educated, or less financially or physically fit. However the bad news is that the rich, the poor, the fat, the thin, the black and the white are all on the same train headed to the same demise. We spend so much time trying to impress one another with, who is prettier, richer, better dressed, more athletically incline etc. all away up to who has the most elaborate tombstone in the cemetery.
Here in the United States people spend their entire lives chasing after the American Dream, a big house filled with lovely insignificant artifacts, two new cars, children off to college, and never spend one minute contemplating what the real purpose of life is.
