  3. Emeasoba George:

    Death is not actually the worst thing that can happen to any human or anybody. Rather, it is one of the best things that can happen to any human or anyone. Yes! you heard me right as ever, come to think of it (death) logically. If there is no death here (on earth) those who are going through misery, difficulty, hardship or poverty would keep on experiencing it forever or endlessly. Moreover, if there is no death here (on earth) those who are living life of affluence or luxury would keep on enjoying it forever or endlessly. That is to say, death serves or works as a breaking point between the life of affluence (luxury) and life of adversity (misfortune). Besides that, it (death) terminates the severity, acuteness, excessiveness, intensity or climax of everything and everyone. That is that, QED. -Emeasoba George
