Can It Happen?

Can It Happen?

When I found out about dying, and was afraid, my grandmother told me that perhaps I would be the first person who would never die. Later, when I knew that was not possible, I wanted to find out when I would die. I thought if I could convince myself each day that I was going to die in my sleep at night I would go to sleep knowing when I would die.

Was that living one day at a time?
