However you feel about death it is still a fact.
We need to think about mortality, really think about it, acknowledge and accept it.
Acknowledgement that we only have one life, and that our lives are relatively short, can make many of humanities differences and squabbles seem rather pointless.
It can be frightening to contemplate death, but it’s a fact. Some people may find this a bit harsh and morbid, but reality is better faced than avoided.
Once we’ve accepted death, we can get on with living.
