Because they unwaveringly stand up for what they believe in, which gets them killed..either metaphorically or literally. It seems there are not many good people left in the world..as everyone is living far too long.
Have you noticed how bad the world is becoming?<br />
God needs help at the gates!
No one knows why. That's why there are songs and a thousand movies exploring this concept.
Both good and bad die young. But when the good die young, it gets noticed. That is why it seems that only the good die young.
It's a coping mechanism. People don't want to think about the fact that an acquaintance who died young might have just been a horrible person anyway.<br />
The fact is, the ethical standard to which you hold yourself has nothing to do with your life expectancy.
in these time even god wants good people around him.
Yes that's true. Young or earlier than the bad. Maybe it's cause God wants them to be in Heaven where they deserve to be not in this cruel sinful world. That's what many say about why Good people die young or maybe before evil people.<br />
Or maybe it's cause God doesn't want them to commit sins so that they won't enter hell.
Only the Creator of all things knows the answer to that question and s/he doesn't appear to be an EP member.
I don't believe that old myth one bit. Maybe it's cause of that song and people just went with it.
Yes, although when you're young you haven't had time to prove or show just how bad you are, lol. So it may "appear" as if you are good. ; )
to balance out the bad
