Has a Single Life Ever Been Saved?

I  think is funny when people say, “you saved my life;” or give credit to something or someone when they were “saved” from imminent death.  First of all, no one saves a life. There has never been since the history of mankind a single life that has been saved. Someone’s inevitable death was just postponed, that’s it. That’s the best we as mere mortals can do and hope for.   So when the doctor cures your cancer, guess what, you’re still going to die eventually.  The people who were saved from Ebola, they’re going to die.  If you’re reading this, you’re going to die.  The biggest cause of death is not heart disease, or cancer, or even stress.  The biggest cause of death is life.  You can’t die without it.  That’s just the way life is.  Life is death.  The only requirement needed to die is to be alive.  The one thing that we as living creatures have in common, be it animal, plant or human, is death.  Even a cat with 9 lives, eventually dies. This is not being morbid. It’s just reality.   So if you find yourself in a situation where you surely would have died, and someone rescues you, please don’t thank them for saving your life.  Thank them for allowing you to live another day, for delaying your ultimate destination.
