    Does death have an "itself," or is the idea of death integral to life, with all considerations of death being reflections upon aspects of life, and having impact upon living?

    Exactly, you no longer matter, gratitude and fucking love. You've chosen to flee, rather than try to make a fucking difference. Fucking scum-bag christians. I'd eat every last one of you morons if I could.

    A student that I worked with for a year and a half in junior high school is now a sophomore in high school. Today he showed me an essay he wrote about someone who made a big difference in his life. He wrote about me. He said that I helped him learn, that I didn't put him down, that I encouraged him to do things for himself. He said I helped him turn his life around. I felt a peak in worthwhileness today.

    Good job

    Every morning and several times each day after that, I think about what makes my life worth living. There are days when no answer seems to come to me. Fear of dying is most likely the default answer then. Other days have enough distractions to limit that consideration. I didn't think I'd make it to this age so each decent day is gravy, each indecent day is another brick to carry until the next decent day when the brick either slides off of my back or my back adjusts to its weight. It isn't clear how many bricks I will be able to carry but I am convinced I must have a strong back.

    As I sit here at work, the damn bricks are piling up and I need to find a place to drop them before I pull a nut.

    Thanks for the question Marv.

    i live for the challenge and my honor but my wife makes everything worthwhile but my strenth comes from without your own strenth you are nothing if you take all possessions away from some1 and leave them naked in all aspects of the word all you have is your own strenth to survive that is what i live for.

    Excuuuse me?
    Don't use ME to validate your ignorant fears!
    Does being part of a group of ignorant fearful people make you feel less responsible for your state of 'evolution'?
    "Not my fault, everyone does it?"
    I wouldn't even accept this from my children!

    I'm with prince and crunchy.

    Wait I just rethought it a bit. What MAKES it worthwhile is a positive attitude. That allows me to recognize and appreciate the facets prince and crunchy mentioned.
