In the movie from Louis L’Amour’s book, “Hondo”, John Wayne passes the news to Geraldine Page’s character that their friend, Apache Chief Vittorio has been killed in battle. Her response is ‘no, it can’t be’, to which Hondo declares, ‘Everybody gets dead, it was his turn”.

In spite of our general behaviors indicating otherwise, everyone old enough to know what death is knows that death is universal among man.

We laugh at humorous quotes by people like Woody Allen, who says he’s not afraid of dying, he just doesn’t want to be around when it happens.

But everyone ‘gets dead’ in his proper turn.
