Things change and your plan may change down the road. Just accept it, because you can't change it, all you can do is help it. And if you're really afraid, if you don't know what's going to happen, ask. Say, am I going to die? Are you going to die? If you're eight years old and you don't even have a clue what's going on, find out. Let your parents talk to you. That's what you need to do. Do live your life, but do help them live theirs because it's really tough right now.
