If you only had 24 hours left to live, what would you do?

If you only had 24 hours left to live, what would you do? Why? Explain. What if you had one week?


If I only had 24 hours left of my life, I would try to make the most of it. Giving a farewell to my relatives will be first, telling them how they have been important in my life, teaching me various things in family gatherings and hangouts.  After the talking and goodbyes, I would contact my friends,maybe meet up with them and have fun doing random things. When that is over, I would, last but not least, go home and spend the rest of the time with my family. Having our last conversation, saying our goodbyes, maybe eating our last meal together. If I had one week, I would do the same, except I would have more time doing them. In 24 hours, I wouldn’t be able to meet with everyone that I cared about and do the things I wanted to before my life ended. With a week, be able to meet up with my relatives, hang out with them, and do the same with my friends. We can do random things, maybe checking things off my bucket list. As my week comes to an end, I would spend time with my loved ones, my close family, and friends. Have a gathering, and as my life slips away, I would lie down on the floor and say one last prayer, and end my life with an “Amen.”


Link to writing process



This prompt is rather deep because it required us to think about what our actions would be if our life ended in 24 hours or a week. It took me a while before I started writing because I had to think about what to write since I don’t usually ponder about these topics. When I planned out what I wanted to write, I was able to comfortably type it out, talking about what I would do first and last.
