December 21, 2012 is roughly four months away and slowly, people are becoming more and more aware that there is a very big possibility that this supposed end of the world is nothing but a hoax. But let’s have some fun, let’s suppose that this end of the world is really about to happen. If indeed, the world is about to end in four months’ time, are you ready to face it? Do you have the slightest idea how you will be able to survive?
Indeed, surviving the doom’s day should be a whole lot more difficult than surviving a simple natural calamity. While we can always be prepare for an upcoming typhoon or be ready when an earthquake suddenly strikes, have you ever wondered if it is possible for us to bear if all these natural calamities occur at the same time. Will you be able to handle it when earthquake comes along with typhoon, tsunami and hailstorm?
Most of us already detest the thought of having to go through the troubles of surviving a simple calamity. We dread the idea of having to get all our sustenance from canned goods or from packs of noodles when a 3-day typhoon strikes; but have you ever thought of an entire year of doing so? The 2012 doom’s day is supposed to last for an entire year!
Maybe this is the reason why it is more convenient to dispense of the idea than to ever think that it is possible to happen. It is easier to live out the remaining four months of our lives thinking that we will all be safe and sound rather to worry about the many untold possibilities come December 21.
And yet, the thought of an Apocalypse slowly coming into our midst is still inviting. For example, after NASA launched “Curiosity”, the robotic Mars rover, many people thought that this might have something to do with us abandoning the Earth – you know, looking for another planet to inhabit.
Well, of the many things that we can speculate about, one thing is definite – we are all going to die anyway, maybe not this year but sooner or later, it will come. And, when that day comes, the question is: are you ready?
Most of us aren’t, just like a mother who has just been told that she only has four months to live because of her severe breast cancer. But if you are left with no option, what else can you do but accept the fact that you are going to die. All the things that you have worked so hard to gain will be left on Earth while your body will rot six feet below the ground.
Stripped of life, what is left of you? When you die, will your loved ones grieve or will they be happy that finally they can partition your estate and all the wealth that you have accumulated in your short stay on Earth? Well, the only person who can really answer that accurately is you.
