How very special are we?

In the story of Charlotte’s Web by EB White, the question of life and death ties the whole story together.

Some characters have a longer life cycle - and some, like Charlotte, live a short time.

Have you ever thought that death might make us special?

That our lives being finite could be a gift? That we know we only have this one life, so we’d better live it well?

In the cartoon adaptation, Debbie Reynolds sings the song Mother Earth and Father Time, which speaks to this very idea.

How very special are we,
For just a moment to be
Part of life’s eternal rhyme.

How do you feel about the fact our lives our finite?
