Every single movie that you grew up watching had some of the scenes which showed the death of a hero, heroine or another character. But the way death is shown is very violent due to its horror or thriller genre.

Some movies which have a horror genre show how each and every person gets hunted down in the movie by a ghost or any villain or dinosaur which you may assume. But the way the ghost traumatises people in the movie and the way how a person dies painfully, impacts the viewers watching it. Another example that can be taken is during covid 19, many people survived the pandemic while some passed away and had a painful death. It not only affected the ones who died but also their family members and the close ones who suffered the consequences of it.

Death is inevitable and it cannot be avoided as it is in hands of the nature. This is a scientific fact which every single living human being in the universe knows it. The idea why the death word sounds so haunting is because of the experience. People who are alive haven’t encountered what it feels like to be dead or feel like dying. When you don’t know the experience then how can you as an individual know what it’s like to be dead, or be in a state where your soul leaves your body and goes away.

According to the 2017 survey conducted by Chapman university it was recorded that a total of 20.3 per cent of Americans are afraid of dying. This indicates a major issue that people deal with in today’s generation. We read marvel stories and fan fiction movies that tell the tale of villain’s or heroes having immortality but does it happen with humans too? The IMMORTAL word itself is very powerful but everyone has to die one day or the other. We as human beings are given the gift of life to cherish it, live it, own it, suffer through it, love it, be humble with it, and grow with it. We have a limited number of days on this earth and so we as individuals should live our life to the fullest and not be sad about it.

The biggest idea given to humans is imagination, and we should use it to our fullest potential and keep hustling and finding new meaning to life under our final day comes. One of the ways through which people should see life is that death gives meaning to our life, our presence, our times spent with our loved ones. DEATH is what gives meaning to our existence. To know that our days are numbered we will at least not take life for granted. We will work hard and accept what life and nature have to offer. At the end of the day, we are just made of dust and matter which goes back in the sands of time. Accepting it makes things easier in life so why not choose to accept rather than to reject and sit in confusion and waste your precious time. ALWAYS CHOOSE WISELY.
