Letter to the Editor: Youth need reality check on the finality of death

To the Editor:

Today’s youth no longer grow up in multi-generational households where children, parents and grandparents all reside under the same roof from cradle to grave. Few die at home anymore.

Most youth have no idea what death is really all about. The closest they get to it is in video games, where death isn’t real – just shoot-em-up and hit restart to start all over again.

Life is not a game where you can push a button and start all over again. So instead of life and death being a natural part of life, we keep our children from it like it’s a disease you can catch.
