We are not immortal

Each and every one of us is going to die and there isn't a thing we can do about it. Thousands of people die every day from natural means or their lives are cut short before a purpose is fulfilled. I am at peace with the thought of dying and so I don't live in fear of death since I know I can not escape death. Since I will die someday, I hope I will have lived my life with enough purpose that my time here will not be insignificant. It seems to me that the choice that each man faces is whether they will die defending their freedom or whether they will die as a coward in chains. I won't wear chains. Maybe I'll die as the only one who took a stand or maybe I will die with thousands of others who took the same personal oath to defend their freedom, either way it doesn't matter. What matters is how much evil I can send to hell before I die if evil confronts me.
