‘Respect the dead!’
It is a virtue much desired by many
They paint their suicide victims
As some kind of angels or saviours
Why? Why respect the dead?
Why respect a pile of rotting meat?
It is not going to benefit anyone
Especially the carcass you pay respects to!
Let’s instead focus on what’s alive
Let’s not let the lives of those around rot
While we pay respects to dead meat
Out of some kind of a social obligation
Don’t mourn someones death
Celebrate their life instead
What’s the point of treating someone like shit
And when they die offer them prayers?
What is the subtext of this?
Are you telling people that the only way to be respected
Is to die? Isn’t that pro-suicide?
Don’t let the lives of people go waste
Don’t ignore the cauldrons of talent, love and hope
Don’t let them go unheard…
P.S. This meme hits the nail on the topic as well! From a different angle though
