I was thinking about how life is measured today.
How people find it especially saddening when a young person dies vs. an older person.

If life was a book...
every birth would be the beginning
everyday would be a page
every chapter would be a year

Right now, I've lived through 17 chapters.
And, that's not a lot.
I thought about deaths that occur so young.
A 17 chapter book isn't very big at all.
A 50 chapter book is big, but it could be bigger.
An 80 chapter book we find huge.

But, just because the book has more chapters, doesn't mean we all liked the ending.
