  • That human life is fragile, and we should live it to the fullest since we don't know if we'll be around another 60 years or 6 days.

  • Good or bad luck, risk-taking behavior, genetics.

  • Shit happens. Whether it's genetics, diet, risks taken or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It's called life and it's completely random. It's what we do with it that makes the diffference

  • Because that's the way the world works. Bacteria and viruses make us ill, cancer kill us, people walk in the road and get run over.

    There's nothing magical about being young that makes them immune to illnesses or death, and it's frankly crass and disturbing to say that a child had a 'more important' job to do if they died young.

    What would you prefer? A world that wokrs like this, or a world where no-one was ever born, or where everyone died at exactly the same time and nothing unexpected happens?
    The universe doesn't have a reason, the universe just is.

  • I do agree with most of the PP I think its bacause of lots of things like good or bad health, good or bad luck, risk-taking behavior, good or bad genetics, ect. and I also personaly believe that it could also be God and Goddess's wills as well as the Fate Atropos cuting a person's thread(of life) with her shears/scissors.

  • Choices. The choices we make now affect us later. Genetics?? I don't know if i necessarily agree on that one, but maybe to a point.

    Answer by MamaK88 at 2:21 PM on Feb. 4, 2011

  • A combination of genetics, environment and just luck.
