I Do Not Fear Death by Roger Ebert

"I will pass away sooner than most people who read this, but that doesn’t shake my sense of wonder and joy."

The essay is from Roger Ebert’s Life Itself: A Memoir and was published to Salon as a memorial of sorts for a recently deceased critic and friend. It is a beautifully written essay about that final threshold to which we all find at the end of our days.
