A Stranger’s Funeral

A Stranger’s Funeral.

It is a good thing, to go to a funeral. (I think I’ll use that line somewhere 🙂 Whether we think about it or not, we are motivated by death. To want to leave something behind, children, friends who remember us, ideas, work, the difference we made.

So when we go to a funeral, we honour the dead, but also, our compact with death. As the Muslims say, to God we return. Whether we are Jewish or not, we say the Kaddish. Each us take Communion, to remind us of rebirth, and eternal life.

Death, I have beaten you
Grim Reaper, Weeper,
I have beaten you.
