Death is the name we give to a very confusing part of life. We know that plants die in Winter. We know that animals die too. We can understand that this is the way nature works. But it is much, much harder to understand why people die, especially someone we love.
A loved one's death may make us feel terribly sad, or afraid, or even angry. But learning about this part of life can help us feel much better. This small online guide answers the questions that most children ask about death.
WHY DO PEOPLE DIE?
Dying is a natural part of life. All living things-plants, animals, even people-are special parts of God's natural world. Nature almost always gives us long, healthy lives. Like all other living things, though, people grow old and reach the end of life. This is called death, or dying.
