“Seize the day. Because, believe it or not, each and every one of us in this room is one day going to stop breathing, turn cold and die.”
That quote, from “Dead Poets Society,” which you likely saw all over social media Monday evening after news broke of Robin Williams’ passing, suggests we should live life to the fullest and speaks of death in the sense that it is a great equalizer. In a way, it is. The risk of human existence is our frailty. Death can strike us in any moment and is not picky when it comes to status, income, race or age.
