Since change is constant, you wonder if people crave death because it's the only way they can get anything really finished.
If nothing else, there's comfort in recognising that no matter how much we fail and sin, death will limit our suffering.
Jack Palance was my distant uncle - that's the family gossip. Growing up, my family knew everything about his face getting burned and scarred in the military and how that mutilation led him to become such a famous 'heavy' in films. I prayed for good scars of my own. Not just acne scars.
I believe in something. But I don't believe that anything can hold a grudge for long enough to condemn its creation to eternal punishment. Nobody can hold a grudge that long, even God.
