We Don't Go There, But Everybody Will

“Easy come, easy go” cannot be said of our stay on this planet.  Worldwide we number more than 7 billion.  23 million newbies arrive every year.  That’s two every three seconds.  At the other end of life 10 million will die this year. That’s one family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker or stranger leaving us every three seconds.
