I can imagine how it felt to be a Jew in the Holocaust. The Jews went to their physical and mental limit just to avoid death. If we do not live our lives fully then we are wasting the gift of life. I don't think it's fair to waste our life, because many people worked a lot harder than us to have life, while they were not able to have it. ...
