Inexorable Death

Fleming Rutledge, Episcopal priest, preacher, and author writes of Easter that she "looks forward to this day more keenly each year as I get older, because...there isn’t anything we can do about death. It is so damned inexorable, and I do mean damned....We feel its presence as a hostile, invading power"
