Read an interesting article about Sherpas in the Mount Everest area. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-19569256
Because of global warning, mountain lakes are bursting, overflowing, and causing damage and death. The Sherpas are upset at all the warnings.
“Instead of having to fear death like that again and again, we would rather die once if the lake really bursts out one day.”
I feel that way sometimes. I would rather die once, then live in fear everyday.
