I know that its a little morbid to discuss this issue/topic.. but let me do it anyway for purposes of discussion.....on the assumtion that everybody is prepared to die i would like to extend this query....personaly my answer would be---- 1)i can say that im prepared to die if in myself i believe that i have done something good to others whether they remember it or not,that somebody lived because i died or that somebody knew something that he/she never knew before because of me and because i knew how to love ....2)and when i know that im prepared to die,i want to die smiling and happy that i lived the way i liked it and done something good that i wanted to do...anytime anywhere...peace!

Good morning 007, well you have got some very good thoughts here..As far me ,and being a christian i would want to know that i had lived my life so that i would make heaven..I don,t think i am quite ready to die yet.I think I would like to mend a few fences so to speak..I have loved,I have had children,I have tasted the joys of life.i have also had some rough things in my life..If i knew i was going to die the most important thing would be to go back and see if there ere anything in my life that i needed to repent of and make peace with God,because I am a true believer...

This is a difficult question, and a very good one. I think most people are prepared to die, as they know it's inevitable at some point. The only trouble is that some people die before they've had time to actually expect it, from a heart attack, or in an accident, and although their prepared to die, they don't expect to die, so there has been no point in their preparation for their final hour. I think you have to accept that you're going to leave this world at some unknown point in your life, and you have to strive to do all the things you want, or need to, before that time creeps up on you. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say here. As I said, it's a difficult question to answer. However, thank you for the discussion. I'm going to be popping back to this one, to see what's said. :-) Brightest Blessings and my your life be a long and happy one.

for me it will have to be whenever my time is up. I to an extent believe in fate, so I am ready for it to bring whatever it has in store. That doesn't mean I stop trying to achieve what I want or stop caring about my life. But I like to live everyday the way you described it being kind, generous and loving, I don't know how much of that I achieve. So I am prepared to die whenever life wants to move away from me.

I don't think that I will ever be prepared to die. But if the time will come and I have to prepare myself there are a couple of things that I wish that I would have completed. First, I wish that my son is happy and financially stable to stand on his own two feet. And second is that my husband and son will have enough time to accept that I am dying. I don't want to die in a sudden accident and leave my loved ones so suddenly without time to say good bye and hug them one last time. I don't want to die all alone in the middle of nowhere where my family can't find my remains. Those are the things that I wish will happen the day that I am going to die.

I sincerely can tell you that I'm not prepared to die. Maybe because I am too young (20 years old) or maybe because I feel I didn't something important in my life, so that others can remeber me and say: wow, what a guy he was. Anyhow, when the time will come for me I hope I will be prepared.

I dont want to say. I'm ready to die when I am married. Instead I want to say. I am ready to die when I believe I have done what I was put on this earth to do. I believe lift others up and be an example of Christ. Lead many to Christ. If I have done this. I guess I could die. But I havent yet I dont think, so I am not ready to die.

for me i can only say im prepared to die if i feel that i have already did all the things i was suppose to do, if i already achieve everything i want and if i have already secure my family's future...that will be the time when i can say "Lord take me now".

No matter how much good we have done in the world no matter how much we have done in the WORLD to think we are ready to die you can never be fully prepared. I think there will always be some unfinished business that needed to be done when I die. Yes I will be going to a better place in Heaven but I still do not think I will ever be ready.

I can't say I am PREPARED to die. But I am not SCARED to die. It could happen any time and it wouldn't upset me. My legal paperwork is in order, so my husband would get everything. We don't have any kids, so that is not a concern. I would hope to leave a legacy of generosity and caring, but I could go at any time and still be at peace with it.

I will be prepared to die once my children are raised and I see them happy and settled in their lives. I will be prepared to die when I see my grandchildren born and can see them grow at least a little. I will be prepared to die when my life is finished and I believe that I will know when all I was meant to do has been done.

Unless you are dying how can you be prepared to die? And yes it is very morbid.
