Death: The Great Equalizer

I heard this term again this weekend maybe 3 times and again last night. So I thought I'd ask you ladies what is your perception of the statement and do you agree that Death is the equalizer for mankind? thanks in advance for your response.

  • I had not heard the term so I had to look it up. I guess it's true we're all on equal plain.

  • Yes, eventually we all end up in a morgue, the very rich and the very poor.

  • Of course it is. It's the ONE thing that no matter our gender, religion, social status, income, race or what not we all have to face! There is nothing else in life that we all have to face like that... So yeah, death is the great equalizer! Dirt is Dirt is Dirt, no matter who you are.

  • I think it's true. When we die, we don't leave the earth with money or material things. Just ourselves.

  • in one way, yes. we all will die at some point (unless Judgement Day occurs..but that's another post.).
    however, that's where the equality ends. some of us will leave behind monetary legacies or humanitarian deeds or actions of evil, or simply, words that live beyond our death. some will not. some of us will be remembered by more than our families and close friends. some of us will not. and for a handful of us, some will be immortalized by society and those we leave if death never occurred. (think!)

  • Well yeah, I mean we al die. Death does not "play favorites" based on race, gender, political status, wealth, etc. It simply comes based on the surrounding conditions of the individual. These conditions can be as complex as their health at a given point in time or as random as being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but regardless of conditions death will come to each of us and take us during our lifetime. (Which obviously ends our life)
