Who will Cry when you Die?

Updated on December 28, 2012

Death will come to all, but ever wondered who all will miss us when our body is no longer existing?

Who will cry over us?

I was inspired by the above title with the death of the Al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin laden.

I see so much joy all over the world and people are relieved (for now!) hearing about the demise of this leader. I have never seen man felt such a sigh of relief hearing about someone's demise.
I guess our Actions speak louder than words, and Osama's actions were horrendous, and people all over the world were devastated at the loss of their family member because of his actions.

Ponder on this

Our deeds ultimately pay us off at the end. What we reap is what we sow and that results in either happiness or sorrow.

Being aware of our deeds now, will still help us make the necessary improvements in our karma piggy bank.

So, next time when you are dealing with another human, be aware of your deeds. Help out that person if he/she needs assistance. Be peace-loving and help spread the mantra for harmony that will help you be in harmony with yourself as well as your community.

Our community is in need of people who love peace and yet have a passion for happiness. If you have that passion within you, get up and be a role model for our society since such leaders are hardly to be found.

We have leaders who propaganda for weapons, revenge and bloodshed, but we don't have people who love peace and yet have a purpose in their life.

Be that someone!

If you can help lead a group to peace and happiness, you would be remembered as a passionate soul even when your soul leaves your body.

Benefits of living for others

This is one life we have got, since; we don't know what kind of body we will be wearing in our next life, so let's make the full use of it. Unite and have a mission for the development of our entire mankind. This will give you inner peace and happiness.

I wish and pray that all humans keep that in mind when we do any action in our lives so that when our body departs from this planet; we will be missed dearly and tears will be shed as a sign of loss and sorrow for the loved one.

      Dear Ruchira, a very emotional topic you have selected for your hub. Indeed a marvellous hub. Not being the same, but nearly to the same idea, some of my poems are as under, hope you'll like to read :-

      Ruchira, this is a beautiful subject. It reminds me of when my father died. My friend was unusually sorrowful. He hadn't known him long, so I thought it might have been his own mother he was really grieving for. Later, I commented to him about it and he said, "Your father was a well loved man. It made me wonder who will come to my funeral."

      Thanks for this important topic. UP/U/A/I and sharing

      Nice hub Ruchira. I didn't really feel excited when he was killed because I thought it was the same as he had done but on a far smaller scale. Of course we didn't want him to be in a position to repeat his deeds and maybe this was thought to be the only way to stop him. Your hub reminds us to do our best for each other and that is great.

      Wonderful hub! It reminds us to be kind and peace-loving. I love the sentiments you've expressed. It is truly sad when nobody cares, or they are relieved, when a human being dies.

      Great job, Ruchira!

      Perhaps, if we can feel a peace within from the comfort of knowing that, in our lifetime, we chose to share with our fellow man and offer assistance.......our moment of death will bring us a sense of a life well-spent.

      You have created a fascinating picture of legacies, Ruchira and as always, I respect your realistic views....UP+++

      This is very thought provoking. I am glad to say more people will cry than will celebrate my death. I hope this doesn't change with old age. Very interesting read!

      I have often thought about this & to be honest, I think those fair weather friends wouldn't care & the fake would pretend to care. Family would grieve I assume if I were to die before them, but just like I hear people say all the time, life goes on. So probably my younger brother would care since we are only a few yrs apart & by then, my parents would have passed away. voted up!

      I guess the longer we live; we tend to offend more people thus, alas fewer mourn your passing ;-)

      Either way, our actions reflect on when our body is no more thus, gotta live upto them so that soul can enjoy the front row seat when people are crying over us :)

      Thanks for stopping by James...meant a lot to hear from you..Cheers!

      You ask a very good question. Surely a loving person who has served others in kindness will be mourned greatly. I have also noticed a dichotomy at play in that the longer you live fewer and fewer mourn your passing.

      Ruchira 6 years ago from United States glad that the above hub made you go deep into thinking :) that was my main motive :)

      I agree 6hotfingers3 since Death is NOT an option we should be delighted to be entering another phase of life when we depart from this body of ours....I guess the memories of that person make us feel sad and make us want him/her around us.

      Thank you for your precious input...appreciate it!

      Even the most evil person in the world has one something or someone that will grieve their death. As for myself I wish people would celebrate my demise. The reason, they will understand I am on the other side of life as we know it. That is a place called Heaven where we will be rewarded for the life we lived. I may not have been a perfect life but I believe God will promote me on the intentions of my heart. I just may be promoted to the best spot in Heaven...

      Totally agree Fucsia...We don't do deeds for people to remember us BUT for our own satisfaction and to make a smooth ride for our Destiny since, our karma's lead us on that path.

      Thank you so much for your precious comment...always appreciate it :)

      Unfortunately the death of Osama Bin Laden cannot relieve pain of who have lose a loved person because of his actions. The joy that this news has created is another manifestation of the sufference that affects our society.

      I think that we must do good actions not for leave a good memory in those who remain after our death, but for live, here and now, with serenity that can arise only when we live with love.

      Yes, most of the people are happy with the death news but not all. That is why there lies a question mark with "PEACE"

      correct neelesh kulkarni. I agree we cry 'cause of the loss we had but, in the above case we know that it was not a loss but a need :(

      to answer the opriginal question those that will lose something with our death including our company will cry when we die.

      no one cries for the one that died, they say , we all cry for ourselves and the loss that is caused to us.

      Fay, I agree with you and always exploring comment but his deeds made him go into the dungeon :(

      Always exploring thanks for stopping by.

      yes, his dear ones would definitely be sad over his passing away but I can imagine what grill they must have gone through when the hunt was going on for this his family members must have been tortured to get information about his whereabouts that they would actually breathe a sigh of relief for their freedom!

      Ruchira 6 years ago from United States

      I agree barbergirl28. It is wrong to rejoice over someone's death but then actions of that person made him call a terrorist and thus, he was considered bad and people were relieved when he was no more!

      Thanks for this thoughtful hub. I admittedly have a problem with people celebrated the fact that someone has been killed. I'm with Always Exploring.

      I know he was a terrorist and probably the world is better that he is gone, but he had a Mother and i'm sure she is crying. Thank you for thoughts to ponder.

      As I was going through status updates I saw several people celebrating at this one man's death... It was a long fought victory that resulted in the lose of many lives. Everybody somewhere has been affected. Than I saw a status update that made me think a little bit. This person said they would not celebrate over someones death. It made me realize that this man has been cruel and he is a terrorist, but is it right to celebrate the death of another. I am still glad that he is gone, but will someone else step up to the plate and replace him.

      Great hub!

      I understand the joy that many felt when they learned the death of Osama Bin Laden. But chances are, his friends and family are crying and grieving for their loss (if he had them).
