    So you assign value to a life? How many grandmothers' lives equal 1 child's life in your world?

    Are you SERIOUSLY trying to argue that the loss of someone you love - whoever that someone may be - is not a big deal? Wow! I can only shake my head sadly.

Then you better shake it harder so you understand me better. Grandmothers naturally die all the time, it's not the same pain and desperation as a person's dying kid in the hospital where a quick prayer is instinctual and even atheists will say it "just in case." So I wouldn't expect you to pray for your grandmother was my point because the two situations are totally different. It has nothing to do with the assignment of value to a life. Nice try, though, you can keep digging.

    And I'm 54 now. I've had friends and family much younger than myself die of natural causes. The likelihood of my developing a serious illness increases every day. I could be gone tomorrow for all I know. None of us know how much time we have.

54? You act like you're toting a senior citizens card when you have at least 20 years assuming you die from average, natural causes. In fact, the US Census lists the category of middle age from 45 to 65. The point is, you're comfortable feeling that death isn't happening any time soon, so it's easy to make statements that you don't fear death any more than sleep. Easy to say when you're snuggled up in the safety and cocoon of your pajamas and wool blankets.
