Reflection on Hannah Arendt can show: If we let ourselves be driven by the idea of avoiding death at all costs, there is not much left of life. Everything in life is connected with danger for life. We have to first and foremost accept our finiteness and our mortality. Then we must ask ourselves what is worth living for and what is worth the risk of dying for.
