每天读点英语美文——如果我今天死去:我的一位好朋友今天打电话给我,告诉我他女朋友的哥哥昨天晚上去世了.这位哥哥已经结婚,留下两个孩子,他于半夜死于严重的心脏病,年仅44岁. "这种事情永远不会发生在我身上",我们都这样认为,"我们还年轻,不会死的."但是多年轻才算"太年轻"呢?

  

  生命是脆弱的。从现在开始我们就要让我们的生活变得更充实,祝福那些深爱我们的朋友和家人。


  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电话给我,告诉我他女朋友的哥哥昨天晚上去世了.这位哥哥已经结婚,留下两个孩子,他于半夜死于严重的心脏病,年仅44岁.

  "这种事情永远不会发生在我身上",我们都这样认为,"我们还年轻,不会死的."但是多年轻才算"太年轻"呢?

  我们真的不知道我们可以活多少天、多少年。一次空难、一次车祸或一次灾难就可能夺去我们的生命。或许我们会染上一种奇怪的病,或许我们身体的一个重要的器官出了问题。

  所以,如果我们的生命将在今天结束,我们会说写什么呢?我们会满足吗?我们会不会认为已经尽力让自己的生活过得充实了?我们会不会想,我们做的对吗?

  这是一个很难回答的问题。我的一个堂姐最近因癌症去世了。我不知道她会如何回答这个问题。但我99%的肯定她并不想死。她有两个孩子,有爱她的丈夫,有很长的路要走(她只有35岁)。

  如果我们的生活每天都很充实,也许我们想到死就不会害怕了。但是,死亡确实只是从物质实体向更加完整的精神实体的过度(这不意味着灵魂不是我们现在的核心本质)。

  有没有一些事情我们可以做的更好?有没有一些人我们可以给予更多的爱?今天我们可不可以实现愿望?如果我们知道答案,还等什么来采取行动呢?死亡?生命是脆弱的。从现在开始我们就要让我们的生活变得更充实,祝福那些深爱我们的朋友和家人。
