A gift to the community: the question
It is about life, and about the suddenness of death.
Background: My brother and his pal, Robert, were in a boat, bass fishing, in anticipation of an impending bass tournament on that lake. In other words, they were scouting. We are talking about a giant lake that has waves like the ocean.
And without warning, the storm came. Rains and lightning.
Sure enough, lightning struck so close to the bass boat, that my brother was knocked out of his seat. He landed on his back, sort of out of it by the impact. Apparently, his head smacked the deck.
Robert came to his rescue, knelt over him, asked him, "Are you dead?"
"Are you dead?" is my household, family, office, client, question in similar circumstance, as we all wish to know!
I challenge ANYBODY here to ask that question in similar circumstance. And if you do, I hope you will give feedback to the rest of us.
