Why do we say that age is just a number when you’re alive, but when you pass away even says “they were so young.” life is full of numbers, ones you wouldn’t even think of- 104,390; number of dreams you will have. 1,700; number of friendship you will make. 5,803; hours you will spend in the shower. 9; number of months you will spend sitting in traffic. Numbers are more important than we perceive them to be. Numbers can be the fine line between life & death.
