Three Days to See

All of us have read thrilling stories in which the hero had only a limited and specified time to live. Sometimes it was as long as a year; sometimes as short as twenty-four hours. But always we were interested in discovering just how the doomed men chose to spend his last days or his last hours. I speak, of course, of free men who have a choice, not condemned criminal whose sphere of activities were strictly delimited.

Such stories set us thinking, wondering what should we do under similar circumstances. What events, what experiences, what associations should we crowd into those last hours as mortal beings? What should we find in reviewing the past, what regret?

Most of us take life for granted, we know that one day we must die, but usually we picture that day as far in the future. When we in buoyant health, death is all but unimaginable, we seldom think of it. The days stretch out in an endless vista. So we go about our petty tasks, hardly aware of our listless attitude toward life.

Only the deaf appreciate hearing, only the blind realize the manifold blessings that lie in sight. It is the same old story of not being grateful for what we have until we lose it; of not being conscious of health until we are ill.
