The fear people have is so intense and sincere that it scares those around them. It scares people who know the people that are around those who came face to face with the inevitable. You find yourself rethinking the decision to not take the new job in Minnesota and checking your blood pressure before your coffee in the morning. Jogging more. Laughing more. You are thankful that whoever they are, isn't you; because there is no boogie man after you face death. There are only blood clots, fevers that lead to hallucinations and cold sweats that haunt you.
