Chapter 4 Duck Soup - Wait, was it Chicken Soup? By Ray

What can you learn or take away from each of the eight chapters? Please consider information from the spotlight articles associated with the corresponding chapters.

What I can take away or learn from the articles is that why does people have to be over grieving when someone dies? We all die in the end, Barack Obama, Lee Hsien Loong, Hu Jin Tao, Kim Jong Il, George Bush, Mark Zuckerburg, Murbarak etc all die. The only thing that makes people grieving more or less is the amount of time we stay on the Milky Way or in layman terms,  the age we die. People feel that like if a grandpa dies at the age of 89 and is a healthy person that died of old age, the family would feel that he had lived life to the fullest. However, if like a small girl at the age of 9 crosses the road on the way to the granddad's funeral and got hit by a car, the family will feel super sad as they feel that that girl has not seen the whole beautiful Earth yet. But, in true fact, we are living life to the fullest, by taking a car, eating your McDonalds, taking a bath, playing your Mousehunt, hacking to people's computers or even getting scolded by some teacher *AHEM*. So the point is that we do not think positively enough when someone kicks the bucket. We have to be more positive when this happens.

  1. Ray,
    This response is an honest one and the tinge of humour that comes through is refreshing. Living life to your fullest is indeed a very important thing to do so when one actually passes on, it is much easier to accept.

    Your response is a very general one and actually doesn answer the blog question that requires you to read each article and say what you have learnt from each of them.
