On Life: Adolf Merkle and Patrick Swayze

As the new year opens up, we are welcomed with news items about two opposing views on life.

One perspective of life has been tragically expressed by the German billionaire Adolf Merkle, when he succumbed to the pressures set forth by the present global financial crisis:

The second life perspective is expressed by with grave anxiety by the actor Patrick Swayze, who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer:

Two different personalities. Two different views on Life. One probably thought that ending his life is the only way he can escape the pressures of saving his business ventures. The other personality is younger, and as such, values his life dearly, and would probably do anything to get a grasp of any lasting cure for his ailment.

Whichever perspective you favor, I hope it gives you peace of mind.
