Yesterday, ms boyd talked about quote of how cowards die many times because they are not confident and have no pride, but if you are a valiant man you dont die before you actually face death that happens once in your life. So ms boyd asked each of us if we are afraid to die, im personally afraid to die but some people in my class arent. So are you afraid to die?
To be honest, I'm a little bit afraid to die because if I die, I don't get to see my loved ones such as my children, grandchildren, and other relatives anymore. However, I do believe that I would go to heaven one day and God would take care of me forever (it's kind of religious thing). That's what I think.

To me, what matters is what would happen to me after I die. If I die, do I reincarnate and start a new life? Do I just disappear? Would it be painful when I die? If I just take a minute and think deeply about death, these questions terrify me. If my existence is erased completely if I die, that would be pretty scary. If I just reincarnate, that would be probably creepy too. If I reincarnate over and over again, that means I have to live until the world ends, right? Last year I've seen my grandfather passing away, and I had a chance to think about my death. I realized that death isn't something far away from us, but rather close and unexpected. Well, you might die the next day from an accident or some misfortune. No one knows. This fact also scares me a little because I am not prepared for death.
I'm definitely afraid of death. Im afraid of death because I'm scared of the after world, how i'll die, how it feels like to be dead, and I really want to face the world like 1000 years later but unfortunately we all won't be able to live til like the year 3000. I really don't want to become a grandma... and worry about death... I really dont. I want to live young and fresh and forever...! Also, I want to live with my family and my husband all my life.. and i wwant to die altogether.. because it would be really sad of thinking some of my relatives will leave me early... and it really saddens me and i'm worried what will happen to them after they die....

I'm afraid to die. I'm afraid because all of the things that I might end up leaving behind. All of the dreams I could have fulfilled, the mistakes I could have fixed, the pain I would leave to my lovers, and so on. As a christian, I'm happy that I'll go to heaven but I still fear of what will become of my lovers. It feels so sad when you have to bare with a family member passing away and I don't want anyone in my family to feel the same when I go away. But death in inevitable and there is no such thing as a painless life, both physically and mentally. I do fear death but I know that one day I will die.

It is hard to say this, but I am. I am afraid of afterlife and the pain I get when I die. I didn¡¯t do much significant things in my life and I would be afraid and sad if I die early. I don¡¯t think I devoted myself for Christianity, so there is low probability of going to heaven (seriously, I cannot conclude that I believe in God). But it is different if I die old (at least 70). That is when I experienced lots of things and want no more. I also get to prepare to die happily when I get old.
hk416 suxs cuz i mde 666666 * 100^666666 kilz wit it
I honestly don't know because I don't think about death everyday. I would be pretty bummed if I die tomorrow cuz I'm so young. I wanna live a full life before I die. I would like to die at a really old age, 100 would be awesome, of natural causes. But, as I mentioned in class, if hell is real, I'm screwed!!!!
I totally agree with Woojung! I'm scared that I don't know what will happen in the future. I wish I don't reincarnate, but I wish to be like an angel or devil or whatever in the sky world. But what I also fear is pain that I will go through. If you think about it, you are going to get pain. Once, I was so worried that I planned how I am going to die. I still worry about it. Anyway I will kill myself if I feel pain from disease or something. I am going to die really fast or instant moment so I will feel pain for like 1 second. Or die in sleep. But I heard that is painful as well. But I am seriously worried about pain.
I am not afraid of death. To say the truth, I kinda want to die sometimes because if I die, I would be in a better place than this. I believe in heaven and hell, so I believe that if I die, then I would go to either heaven or hell, which is, I believe, better than being a student and studying for my life. It's not that I don't want to live or something, it's just that I know I would have a more comfortable life than what I have right now. So, I'm excited. hehe
She asked us the same question too. I answered that is really depends. People seemed to afraid the process of death. I sometime think I'm afraid to die because I can't find out what is going to happen after die.on the other hand I'm not afraid because of the fact that everyone must die in the future. It's not like I'm the only one who has to die. Which is fair. So I really think that my answer depends on the situation. And there are some other reasons too.. But I'm not going to discuss that haha.. Too long.
I am afraid to die, however I think there is no point of fearing death. I mean it is going to happen someday. The only difference is whether you will die quickly or later. Death is the ultimate rule of the universe that no one can deny.
Even though I said all of this, I am still afraid of death because when you actually face death, you still desire to live. However, if you worry and wish to live forever, you are wasting your life. Everyone knows that death is going to come upon you. Therefore, before you die, you would want to live a life without regret by doing what you dream of. I, for example, want a job that I am interested in before I die.

I'm very afraid of death because the fact that I'm leaving things that I have accomplished and loved is unimaginable. Also, it's true that nobody knows what will happen after death. People who are religious believe that their souls will go to heaven or hell or will reincarnate. But being dead is what no one who is alive has experienced and it's something that can't be sensed and imagined. Therefore, being afraid of death would obviously cause you to avoid things in life and seek your dream. It's ideal to not think about death. Instead, it's a good idea to continue living a meaningful life because it's a present that you will once have :your family, your friends and etc. Even if there's heaven, which I believe in some way there is, wouldn't it be different?
Yes i am afraid of death. Im worried of how my family, relatives, and friends will feel >< I know that if one of my family member or friend died, i would be very very depressed. Even though i don't really have a dream or a certain goal, but i want to live longer and see what it's like in the future. I wouldn't want to suddenly die right now >< there are so much to discover and learn and experience ><
I am afraid of death, there are so much that I feel like I need to do and that I haven't complete. I want to accomplish something big in life, like become a actually single and actually earn money from it and give it to my family. My biggest accomplishment my life would be to raise my parents by myself. That is my biggest goal in life. From my parents own experiences, my dad had an sudden heart attack 5 years ago while he was sitting in the car talking on the phone and he also died from that. My mom also had a similar experience. She was talking with my dad in our house and suddenly a blood vessel in her brain pop, causing her to go through operations and she had to stay at the hospital for 2 months. These things happened on a normal day, which shows that you can actually die anything, so from that experience I had learned to live my life to the best and live like your dying.
i am afraid of death cause if someone tells me that im gonna die tomorrow i wouldn't be jumping around having fun i would be afraid, im worried about how my family friends and my relatives will feel, there are a lot of big things i need to accomplish in my life, but honestly i don't know cause i don't think of death everyday.
