Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life. ~John Muir

Lilo, that quote is lovely, but very "deep". I'm afraid most of today's kids are never outside long enough to experience what John Muir is expressing.

For myself, I have trouble believing that "death is stingless"; necessary, but rarely stingless.
