I'm not trying to flame you Lee, I just thought that
this would be a good topic to jump-off from.

I've wondered why having a fear of death is often
considered to be something shameful. I would rather
continue to exist and live a good life, rather than
die (in the "permanent" sense). So, because I would
rather live well, then I suppose that I *do* have a
fear of death. Does that make me ashamed to say it or
feel it? Not at all. If I die, then nothing I've ever
cared about will mean anything to me; because I won't
care about anything.
