CELEBRATING LIFE OR DEATH???

Travelling to work most recently it seems that a car accident occurred on a bridge that I cross and there is a shrine meant for someone who may not have survived. There are flowers, photos and every day it looks like someone else has been there to add chalk drawings to the road in an attempt to let people know that someone died there.
My biggest question in these situations is WHERE DID THEY LIVE? This is obviously where they died but where did they live?
I’m not trying to be harsh but surely we should be celebrating their life not their death.
I’m a true believer in the power of positive thinking. I’d like to think that if this person died they were able to give their organs to others in need or maybe their death showed someone else to be more careful and thus saving a life but these shrines at scenes of accidents only go to prove that a loved one is gone and not coming back.
Personally I think they are still with us in spirit and that the rest of our lives means that not only are we thinking of them but that they are helping us in a decision making process since they left us.
So I just wish people would not celebrate the death of someone they love and start commemorate their life – we were lucky to have them as long as we did and surely that should count for something.

I am having the best time of my life. I'm 50 plus, divorced, two grown children and just the opportunity to have a life after so many years of scrimping and saving is well worth the time it took to get here. I have a fantastic family with great family values and spending time alone is certainly something I enjoy which a lot of people find difficult to handle. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and cannot imagine living anywhere else. Strangely I don't like to travel and have no plans to do that in the future - I say strangely because so many people can't understand this, wanting to travel and experience other cultures - not on my agenda. What do I want to do? I have my new house and am enjoying making it my own but now I am looking for the right job for me after 10 years of being "just a receptionist". I don't want to be "JUST" anything anymore. I would like a job that helps me grow personally, something that encourages me to learn but also where I can be creative and people appreciate me. I want, I want, I want but really I need to know that I am comfortable in my own skin and my life means something to me. My motto is ... "People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" I've had many people who I can't even remember their names tell me that I made them feel good and for that I am truly grateful. I have become an avid reader of Rhonda Byrne's 'THE SECRET', "THE POWER" & now 'THE MAGIC". Whether you believe or think it's a load of @#$!@ - I do know that it works for me and my life and I am all the better for it. You can't go wrong when you just learn to say "thank you".
