"There is no right or wrong way to deal with death, there is only your way.
My grandma died of cancer a few years ago. We found out about it when she had a stroke. And people came from all over the country just to spend time with her in the…"
"I would like to share with you my views on death. They can be expressed to some degree among other points in a set of four videos by the philosopher Alan Watts. Because of listening to the opinions of Alan Watts, I am not afraid of death…"
"I approach death the way I approach most things, ignorance. We has no clue what happens after we die, no one has ever really come back from the dead. Even those brought back on the table usually were not "dead" in the truest sense. For all…"
"My philosophy is simple. With life there has to come death. Death is the price of life. The only way to avoid death is to not have lived, and I don't see that as a better option. Everyone has to die someday, but at least they got to…"
"As someone who has been through at least a similar situation, it may actually be good for you to talk to people you know and trust before you are certain about your sexuality. There's no reason you should do this alone; even if your mother…"

"I am sorry, losing a family member is never easy.
I think about death in this way: We are all connected, I hold memories in my head of people that died many years ago. I also know that their energy is now helping to grow trees and plants and…"
"The best way to deal with death, in my opinion, is to accept it for what it is; The end of a life. That might sound harsh, but it's all we can know it is. Don't waste your time thinking about what happens to people when they die, if they…"
"I'm very sorry to hear about your grandmother; know that you and her both have my best wishes.

A archaeology-loving, piano-playing, video game-winning Nerdfighter
I like a lot of things. I love reading and writing and singing poorly in the shower. I like to cook, but I like to eat more. I am getting my MA in the wholly self-indulgent field of Classical Archaeology and loving every second of it. I spend most of my nights translating Greek and/or Latin, watching Sci-Fi shows, playing all the games, reading things, and sleeping.
