Old Age

My birthday was last week and instead of celebrating I spent the day lamenting the fact that I am now another year older and that my youth is quickly becoming a thing of the past.

I'm probably not alone in feeling this way - but is old age such a bad thing?

The elderly man in this photo has lived a long life - I'm not sure whether it was a happy one, but it was a long one and that is probably the best we can hope for.  

A four year old child was murdered on the streets of Taipei yesterday. She'll never have the opportunity to grow old and experience all of the amazing things life has to offer.

Life isn't fair and its times like this that reminds me that we have to be thankful for the life we have.
