Jane Fonda is, apparently, scared of dying. I suspect that many people share much the same feeling, that they must, sooner or late, leave this small planet and take the inevitable step beyond life into an unknown or non-existent future. Death is something we all have in common, no matter who we are, where we come from, how rich or poor, good or bad we are or have been.
Many may well be of the opinion that Jane Fonda, at seventy-six, should have come to terms with what must happen one day many years ago. It’s not as if she is unintelligent, and certainly not that she can’t have known that death will visit her one day. And yet, according to an article in the Daily Mail, she hasn’t found the time to sit down and consider this future. It is also fair to say that she has had a life many other people envy, no matter how she may see it. But, at seventy-six, to complain that you have so little time left?
Perhaps she should be grateful for the many years she has already had, and enjoy these last years, no matter how many she may still have. It’s not as if she doesn’t have the means and resources.
