Safety Coffins

Lately I have been reading about the "Safety Coffins" of the 19th century. Apparently, everyone was afraid of being buried alive, so a few people designed coffins fitted with ropes to pull that would trigger a bell, a flag, or fireworks.

What's with your preoccupation of death? Accept ot and get rid of it!!! You are young and full of life. Don't let those thoughts prevent you from enjoying it to the fullest. Our spirits live on as long as there is someone who loves us. G. at almost 89.
