Was talking to a friend of mine who is fairly young (24), and has seen people die a couple times. I've seen 2 or 3 people die in my 30 years (whether the 3rd died is an unknown after the ambulance took him away...but with the length of CPR and unresponsiveness, I'd say he was dead). How did it affect you? DID it affect you? Did it change your attitude towards dying, and make you fear it less or more? One thing my experiences in life has taught me is that there are FAR worse things than death. I hope that when I go, I am able bodied, 80 years old, and am here one second and gone the next. To me, 'not living,' is faaaar worse than dying. What say you?
