while u get to breath another day, see another sunrise and sunset, you also get to see more tragedies, more suicide, more terrorisms, more disasters etc which mean u hear and see more sufferings of people.u get to experience more financial crisis, recession woes, get to hear people losing money, families etc. If you are well off, you may also see your siblings, childrens fighting over assets and hearing prayers wishing you would go off asap into the ground. howver, if u do not have much $, you would have to worry about how to finding means to feed yourself and a shelter over your head. u also have to worry about illness and expensive medical bills. so after considering all this, do you still think it is a blessing to live long and want to have a long life???

Hello! I am a retired government officer and getting enough money from the government as pension for my maintenance.So I need not bother for money.I have also a home in the capital city.For shelter I have no problem.Now I am seventy years old and hopefully I will live for another ten to twenty years as I am physically and mentally very strong. I am free from any sort of lifestyle disorders.And if God desires I may live for another thirty years to complete the century.thanx.
