I know, nobody wants to die. At least in most of the cases. But we know that we'd die and we don't know when. No matter what's you age we should be prepared for an end. Do you feel that you are prepared to die? In my case the answer is no. I am just 23 years old and there's a lot of things that I want to share with my family, a lot of goals that I'd like to reach. I don't feel prepared at the moment. What about you guys?

Hi starsailover, I really don't think being prepared has anything to do with it. I feel that we all come here for a specific time and that, at the time, we knew and agreed with it. I'm 71 years old and there are things that I want to do yet but like you and others, I have no idea when I will have used up my time.I think that we are all prepared when the time comes. The short span that we spend here in a lifetime doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things. Blessings.

I do not feel prepared to die right at this very moment. There are things that I need to prepare in order to be truly "ready". Ideally and loose ends will be tied up as well as any unfinished business, completed. I feel in order to be content and "ready" I would not want things left undone. For that reason alone I do not feel ready. Spiritually I feel that I am ready for the inevitable although do not feel tat my time on this earth is about to expire any time soon. Sure I could get taken out by a car as I cross the street or by some other means but I just do not feel that that is even the case. Within a few months time, should I remain focused, I am sure I can close up what is left to do so that I will feel entirely prepared.

Hi Evr Wonder: I think it's normal. In my case, I think there are so many things that keep me working and loving being alive that I hope God will have a long-term plan with me. I'd like to have everything in order before saying goodbye to this beautiful (even with all the problems that we have) world. ALVARO

If you will ask me,, "Do I want to die?".. Then I would gladly said yes!. Only and only if I will surely meet God in heaven. In heaven I won't bother to answer that question anymore for I know that with God, I have everlasting life... ^_^

Hi jaiho: I don't have kids right now, but as a son I hope and also pray to God for my parents. I hope that they would be with me for a lot of years. I want to make them feel proud of me and make them happy and also share my own goals as a professional and as a person with them. ALVARO

Most people say they are not ready to die. However, we are supposed to be ready because anytime we will die. In my case, I am always ready to die.
