For me I know that death is part of our life. As Leerock said it's taboo here too. They are not talking about it. I think if you want to know better what are people thinking of death you should read lots of poem. I'm atheist but I believe that there is something after i die. The only thing what I fear is that I will have only a little time. I don't want to die at a very old age ( I know people who don't want to live more than 40-50 years because she doesn't want to age) maybe around 70-80.
