It does make you think

It does make you think I’m still in shock of George Michael death at the age of 53. Ok, he was famous and may have done things I will never do, which could have shortened his life, but I’m only a year younger than he was and it’s scary to think that at any time it could be you next. Ok, it’s something you shouldn’t think about and live your life to the best you can. It does make you think, though, you are here one minute gone the next. My mum passed away at 61 after an operation which she never came round from. my father is still alive and is 79. I don't know if your parent's ages have anything to do with how you will live for.

I am ten years older than he was so should I feel lucky? I had a heart attack in the spring this year but I pulled through so am I living on borrowed time? I think it is best not to think about what might happen and hope that whenever the time comes it will be painless

That is true, no one knows exactly when could be the time of leaving this world. Parent`s age may determine one`s own time on earth, but more than that, dying old or young is determined by one`s own acts on this planet

Longevity could be in your genes, but lifestyle also plays an important part.

Sometimes we can't control ourself and we can't predict how we die. So just hope for the best. George Michael had made a difference to the early popular singers to China. His band Wham is the first to visit and have a concert here. He was meaningful to us. I watched the documentary about it yesterday. It is nice to see how my country looked like at that time.

I think there been many pop stars have changed the way we are today in different parts of the world. Yes, you are right we don't really have any control over when to do pass away, life for today and enjoy life to the fullest.

Carrie Fisher was on top of my age and that number was very apparent to me.

Glad I'm not the only one, I think it's because I grow up listening to him and being of more or less the same age.
