I can say that the last part of 2011 and the early days of 2012 had been short of... hard. Apart of all the problems that life throws at us, every now and then, life gives you a full dosage that sometimes is too much to digest. In some circles it's what is called the changing of the guard. This term refers to the formal ceremony in which sentries providing guard duties at a highly important place are relieved by a new group of fresh individuals that will take charge of such responsibility. In our human life, this process happens when the elders of our family pass away.
Death is the surest thing that will happen to every one of us at some point of our lives. It is the natural process that renews human existence. But at what cost? It seems that most people are not ready for it. Are you ready? I know that I'm not. Not now, not yet.
