Earlier of that day, Chris and Jack saw a car in the woods. They call ambulance and in that car girl and Driver are there. Chris said these words to Jack.


This morning, he was alive. Now he's dead. Just hard to make sense of it. We should be part of it. We're so f**king delicate people. Die so easy.

What is "it" in the "part of it"?


Does it means "car in the woods" or "dead"?

Neither. It may refer to the ensemble of life experiences.
