 Although the person that die was reallysick, but he is not the only one.Perhaps I think I am so much better thanthose people, but the bell still ring when I die.The church connects everyone, once we arejoin with the same faith, we are to beconnected. If someone has been washed byGod, that person will be connect to mybody, means we are in one. when someone ends, it affects myemotions. He or she maybe a part of my memories, a part that created me.However, when the spirit disappear, thestory goes on but with an anotherending.People die in many ways, from ages,sickness, war, and justices. God is incontrol of every situation. Eachperson's death affects the world in hisor her own ways.The bell doesn't ring only for thereason, death but also shows theaffections of every person. however, most of the affections are based on me.because Of my sickness, I am closer tothe door.The bell that rings every morning, peopleshould respect and take it seriously, within it's the beginning of the day.If the bell rings and then stop, weshould grief and show respect, becausehe is closer to God.In cording to the religious orders, thebell should ring in the morning tosymbolize that lives are still moving on,if you are the first person that rings thebell, it means that you enjoy your life.
