This, from Twitter, upon author Terry Pratchett’s recent death:
Despite rumor, Death isn’t cruel — merely terribly, terribly good at his job.
Death is good at his job–there’s a 100% mortality rate for humans! You may never get in a car wreck, but you still put your seatbelt on every time just in case–doesn’t it make sense to take equally simple steps to prepare for something that is guaranteed to eventually happen?
You are going to die. Your loved ones are going to die. I AM going to die.
Why don’t we start the conversations now about what to do once we do?
