Some of my friends and I were talking about Death and how we view it.
Some have admitted that they are afraid, others state they don't care and many others like myself have just stated that we accept the inevitable.
What's your take on the matter?

I'm in two minds about the whole death thing. Accept death? I laugh at people who say they accept death in a "what you gonna do" manner. It's the most unfair and cruel thing ever devised, why should we be leveled with all the other scum, we don't get any rewards for being good people we just rot in a hole and pretty soon after that we are forgotten. Sometimes I feel choked by fear when I think about it, the unstoppable power that is our impending death just really makes me feel weak and feeble. I really don't think it's something that anyone can ever accept and just say "shit happens", if you have such a light-hearted approach to death then you haven't thought about it hard enough.
On the other hand death is a gift, imagine the thought of endless time stretching out in front of you, I think it would drive a man insane. After all, we all make mistakes and carry baggage, can you imagine the amount of baggage you would have if you lived for a thousand years? I'm just seventeen and I'm $#@!ing plagued by things everyday, thoughts and regrets that just follow me around.
Lets end this post on a more happy note shall we? Death makes life all the more precious, it makes everyday seem special, to know that you possess something that many people have lost. It motivates me personally, it makes me get up off the laptop and do stupid shit and have fun. It also helps me when I'm stressed out with school work and other things I just think to myself "Hey, this is nothing, you're gonna die someday asshole, so cheer the $#@! up.". You will never really accept how precious life is until you accept how precious death is, and I'm sure you'll be happy when you do.
