Have all Martyr's desired death or has death been thrust upon them?

And what does carrying water have to do with it??

Manjusha,
I suspect most martyrs want to be martyrs, but grant you that a true martyr doesn't choose to be. Water was just a metaphor for a burden, I'm not sure this one didn't suck. On Good Friday, I wanted to make sure the gag targetted "martyrs" not Martyrs. Thanks for the comments.
