right now as you are reading this you are blinking, breathing. your heart is pumping blood through your whole body. from your toes to your fingers blood is being pumped. your brain is telling your eyes to read this without you even realising.

you are alive. and in this moment there are billions of people on this earth just like you. and as your brain is telling your body to live and breathe some are failing to do so. some know this and some don't.

someone just died. but now there are at least five babies that were born for that one person gone. five new lives. five new brains telling the body to blink, breathe.
