    But I bet there's a reason it's not on that top 5 list. You lived and saw the amazing reality of life on planet Earth no matter where you were born, live, and will eventually die. This simple fact dwarfs all the things you might miss out on, though the things, places, and people you will never know is infinite. We might look back with pride and think "I got to see the Beatles play" or "I got to see Venice" or "I got to know my wife." All that really matters is you got to see and know life.

    The opposite of life is not death, but indifference. -- Jaki Gefjon (A.A.Attanasio)
