LJ Palombo 11/30/07 Ms. Spanier Definition Essay The Mystery of Death Everyone, sometime in their life, has thought about the after-life. What happens when you die? Where do you go after death? What is death? These are common questions asked by many and answered by few. No one really knows about death, all we know is how to achieve it. Most people say that death is the end of an existence, but maybe it is the beginning, or maybe it is both - but who’s to say what’s right and wrong. I believe death is the conclusion of a life, but also the beginning of a mysterious existence. When you die, your body stops working, and your entity ceases to exist. I believe that your soul, nonetheless, lives on and begins a new journey. The whereabouts of this journey and the objectives, I can’t fathom. My belief may be completely stupid and wrong, but who’s to say what’s right. However, one thing I know to be right, which is that your physical life does end when you die. There are many things that death is and is not. Death is not birth. Although, they both usually occur in a hospital, they are different. Birth is the beginning and death is the end. Death may lead to new beginnings, but is not defined as them. Death is not usually associated with words like lively, joyous, or happy. A positive connotation does not go with death. Death is grim and sad.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
