Rest In Peace – but who? The Living or the Dead

by horngyih

Often when we hear of another person’s loved ones passing over to the great beyond, people often exclaim RIP or Rest In Peace as if to send a message to those passing over. Shouldn’t we be wishing those left behind here in among the living to “Be at Peace” with the passing? Most cases, it is the living that needs consoling more than those who passed on.
