Is Dying Really So Bad? – The Dish | By Andrew Sullivan – The Daily Beast

Some varied reflections on dying, from an individual and social perspective, along with a funny video parody of life insurance, legalese and copyright from a broader life perspective. Quote:

Even women who lament that they will not see their youngest daughter graduate, or their son get married, are often not thinking, “O, that’s a good time I won’t have.” Rather, their thought is more about how their child will have a large gap in the normal social surrounding. Other grads get photographed with both parents; theirs will stand out as not having a mother. …

[I]f we think of the goods that accrue individualistically, then death means one doesn’t get any more, but then one isn’t around to experience the lack. If, however, we think of the good socially, one’s death can be very destructive to things one has spent significant parts of one’s life on. 

I also feel the same way – want to be around for as long as possible to be there for my family.
