That’s (approximately) how many people who woke up this morning are going to die unexpectedly today. And tomorrow. And the day after that. I won’t get into the math in detail, but it’s about 10% of the total number of people who die each day. Nine in ten of those people reasonably expect it. They know it’s coming. But for 16,020, it’s going to sneak up on them.
As I’ve looked at it, it occurs to me that I’m probably not alone in this…which is ironic, because the main fear I’m feeling is the fear of being alone in this.
I’m launching this project on December 29, 2020, because December 29, 2017, was the most important day of my life.
