10.Death is the cosmic Etch a Sketch. It shakes everything up and gives you a fresh start for the next life.
9. Death is necessary to have closure.
8. Death maximizes our human potential.
7. Death liberates us to do our best.
6. Death makes room for others to take your place.
5. Death unites us with the force.
