Abstract

Death is the one certainty in life. This fascinates me and I cannot stop thinking about it. When it comes to life and death, the cemetery is a more realistic place than heaven and hell, and it is also a place to feel life and death more directly. A simple gravestone separates life from death. Cemeteries let people come face to face with life, death, and even love.

In a cemetery, there is a tranquility that is different from the city or nature. In a cemetery, people take off their masks and face their emotions. I believe that when we talk about cemeteries, there should be more than just fear. It seems to me that cemeteries are a place that could connect life and death. They are full of memories from the living and the dead. They are filled with both life and death.
