final thoughts on final moments

we may not know when or how we will die, but what we do know is the what. what are we going to do with the time we have. i read through the comments and am amazed that such intelligence still exists, people who think for themselves and are not afraid to state what they think and believe.
a person wrote that because someone is Christian they don’t fear death, which from my experience is untrue. everyone subconsciously seeks immortality (the fountain of youth, vampires, etc.) and it is only human to try to hold on to the short life we do have. like i touched on in the first respose to shane, though i have a Greater Hope i am afraid of what i don't know in death i am terrified of getting old. i am scared of not being able to take care of myself, of having to be fed, and living because a machine helps me. as issac asimov said “Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.” i would rather pass away to the unknown than to stay here on this earth in the known of a nursing home.
im sorry i don't have all the answers but if i did i would be either God or dead, for only those know for sure. but know that there are those of us who are alongside you on this same path.

Learn as if you were going to live forever. Live as if you were going to die tomorrow.
--Mahatma Gandhi

i agree. we all fear death even if we do consider ourself Christian. Because we fear the unknown: how will i die, when will i die, etc.
