Great article on why to not fear death

It’s a long article, and I mostly read the last part but very worth reading. I especially enjoyed those moments when she thought she was dying and did not do the cliche (there are no atheists in the trenches idea that facing sudden death caused atheists to start praying)… Lots of food for thought; many of these concepts are fleshed out in the book “Staring at the Sun” by Yalom all about death and death anxiety which I also highly recommend!
