Memento Mori

In the end we are all reduced to bone and returned to the earth.
There is no life form greater than another.
All are equal.

Death is an unavoidable event.
The life that came before it should be celebrated;
And the remains cherished.

Ways of laying one to rest differ between cultures and species.
This is also a trait specific to a select few creatures.
Who is to care for the rest?

All life is valuable.
No species is greater than another.
We all rest the same.
