I believe that all human life has great value; whatever one’s values are, being
family, freedom, personal values, we are all unique in one way or another. Everyone
should be treated with compassion, love, and forgiveness because all human’s have
different beliefs and values. I believe only our god has the right to judge right from
wrong. Gandhi once said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow”, life can be very easily
be taken for granted, it only comes around once. How we spend our days is, of course,
how we spend our lives.
I think values are how we have learnt to think how people are supposed to behave
or how things ought to be. There is no absolute truth, the way I perceive something,
someone else may not. The mind works in a way that if something makes sense to one t
that is what they will believe. If people could grasp the core foundation of reality around
them, maybe the truth would not be an area of confusion.
Another reason for my belief is that nothing in life is ordinary; it should not be
taken for granted. Every breath is one less that one has, their is not enough time to waste
breathe on judging others and being critical towards one’s beliefs. I believe god himself
is the only one who can morally judge humans and to understand life to its fullest extent
one must see what other’s see, listen and try to understand others thoughts and values of
There is no certainty in the world; anything can happen at any given time. I
have recently lost two cousins, one got shot and one died last week in a car accident.
Death is mysterious and fearful, there will come a time when our life on this earth will
come to an end and our minds will no longer function. Losing someone very close to me
helps me see what’s real in the world. Also now knowing how fast life can end, I cherish
the value of life and being able to take breathe after breathe. Thoughts on life start
changing and I stop and think about the value of life, it is virtually infinite. If one loves
life, their shall be no sorrow to die.
With many distractions in today’s fast moving world, many of us forget the true
values in life and waste time following the wrong path’s of life. Then suddenly life is
over before it really even started. Sometimes I think why are we living and what are we
doing in this world, their will be no answer 100% correct, but all I can do is live life and
love life, for I have been given a great gift that I will not take for granted.
