DOES TO LIVE MEAN TO SUFFER?

Natural Disasters that kill and injure millions. Children orphaned when their parents die of AIDS. People forced to spend their lives in slavery. Sometimes it seems as if suffering is more natural to the human condition than health and joy. But suffering is not something we should accept as an inevitable part of life, to be embraced, or even just endured.

Earlier this year, I went on an early-morning walk up a mountain with my sister and her fiance. It was a beautiful autumn day, and we enjoyed the sunshine, saw several kangaroos, and finally reached the top to see a panoramic view of Canberra city. But as we sat catching our breath, my sister's fiance became very unwell. He wasn't able to walk back down the mountain, so I went by myself to get the car.
