The article, “Day of the Dead tradition offers natural way to view death”, by Liz DeCarlo states
“A lesson from Mexico. The Day of the Dead exhibit at the National Museum of Mexican Art helps families explore the subject of death in a healthy, less fearful way.”
The Day of the Dead in Mexico in all reality ironically celebrates life. It has an understanding that life exists after death and that we should honor the dead and their new existence.
It also makes others outside of the country focus more on death. It forces, those of another culture, to re-think about their own existence and to examine their own existence.
Death is inevitable and it is time the American culture stop considering it a taboo subject but discuss it openly and honestly. This is what Elisabeth Kubler Ross adovated years before and it is what needs to be done now.
