You're Going to Die, Here's How to Deal With It. When I came across this article about dealing with the fact that we are all going to die, I was interested; primarily because I have started losing friends and relatives at an alarming rate. At my age, this is to be expected; but, it is still a truth that needs dealing with. So, we all need to accept the fact of death, and live each day as best we can. That is the best strategy, in my opinion. When death comes, let's all agree to accept it with equanimity and grace. You're going to die. Get over it. Embrace the fact. Laugh in its face. You have lived. You have enjoyed good friends, good food, good fun, and some not so good stuff. Why are we so afraid of it? It is somewhat like being afraid of sunrises. You know they are coming. You know you can't stop them. Why not have fun with them? Have fun with death and the idea of death? Sure. Why not?
