每天讀點英語美文——如果我今天死去:我的一位好朋友今天打電話給我,告訴我他女朋友的哥哥昨天晚上去世了.這位哥哥已經結婚,留下兩個孩子,他于半夜死于嚴重的心臟病,年僅44歲. "這種事情永遠不會發生在我身上",我們都這樣認為,"我們還年輕,不會死的."但是多年輕才算"太年輕"呢?

  

  生命是脆弱的。從現在開始我們就要讓我們的生活變得更充實,祝福那些深愛我們的朋友和家人。


  Life is fragile.

  A good friend of mine called me today and shared that his girlfriend's brother passed away last night. He was married, with two young children. He died of massive heart attack in the middle of the night. And he was only 44 years old.

  "It could never happen to me," we think.

  "I'm too young to die." But how young is "too young to die?"

  We really don't know how many days or years we will live. An accident, such as by plane, automobile, or other mishap could claim our life. Or perhaps, an unusual illness. Or a vital organ could fail.

  So what would we say, if our life were to end today? Would we be satisfied? Would we know that we had lived our life fully, on purpose? Could we feel we "did it right?"

  It is hard question to answer. I recently had a cousin pass away from cancer . I don't know how she would have answered this question. But I'm 99% positive she wasn't "ready" to go. Not with two little ones and a loving huaband and so much life ahead of her(she was 35 years old).

  If we live our life completely every day, we still may not be thrilled with the thought of death. However, death is really only a passing from one physical body to our more complete spirtual one (not that our spirit isn't the core essence of who we are now).

  Are there things we can be doing better? Are there people we can love better? Can we live our aspirations, today? If we know the answer, what are we waiting for to make us do it? Death? Life is fragile. Now is the time to live fully and bless those friends and family who grace us with their love.

  生命是脆弱的

  我的一位好朋友今天打電話給我,告訴我他女朋友的哥哥昨天晚上去世了.這位哥哥已經結婚,留下兩個孩子,他于半夜死于嚴重的心臟病,年僅44歲.

  "這種事情永遠不會發生在我身上",我們都這樣認為,"我們還年輕,不會死的."但是多年輕才算"太年輕"呢?

  我們真的不知道我們可以活多少天、多少年。一次空難、一次車禍或一次災難就可能奪去我們的生命。或許我們會染上一種奇怪的病,或許我們身體的一個重要的器官出了問題。

  所以,如果我們的生命將在今天結束,我們會說寫什么呢?我們會滿足嗎?我們會不會認為已經盡力讓自己的生活過得充實了?我們會不會想,我們做的對嗎?

  這是一個很難回答的問題。我的一個堂姐最近因癌癥去世了。我不知道她會如何回答這個問題。但我99%的肯定她并不想死。她有兩個孩子,有愛她的丈夫,有很長的路要走(她只有35歲)。

  如果我們的生活每天都很充實,也許我們想到死就不會害怕了。但是,死亡確實只是從物質實體向更加完整的精神實體的過度(這不意味著靈魂不是我們現在的核心本質)。

  有沒有一些事情我們可以做的更好?有沒有一些人我們可以給予更多的愛?今天我們可不可以實現愿望?如果我們知道答案,還等什么來采取行動呢?死亡?生命是脆弱的。從現在開始我們就要讓我們的生活變得更充實,祝福那些深愛我們的朋友和家人。
