Lots of important deaths around the world (see below). Not that there is not death every day, but when it is people that you have become familiar with, you start to realize that death is inevitable. As they say, the only thing certain in life is death and taxes. But I disagree, not everyone has to experience taxes, but it is absolutely true that everyone will die. Death can touch us in ways that we could never know, and that can be both beneficial and detrimental. Nonetheless, we should be able to learn from death. Did you realize that from the time Terry Schaivo's feeding tube was removed until she died, more than 200,000 people around the world died from starvation? It seems that this one death over shadowed a more important problem in the world.
As Edward Norton says in Fight Club, "On a long enough timeline, everybody's survival rate is zero."
