Will 'The Fault in Our Stars' teach America re the true gift that death can be?

I learned about The Fault in Our Stars by John Green last year - thanks to my young adult daughter - who also writes. I ended up listening to the audio version and found it a most meaningful, powerful, emotional book that touches on some of the most important aspects of life - and death.

Having now watched some of the youtubes and trailers that are out - in preparation for the debut of the film version of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars on June 6 - I am aware that this film could touch a powerful nerve in our changing society. And I'm wondering if it might have the potential to wake us up, especially to the power and gift of death, in some wonderful ways. The book, as well as the film, carry a powerful statement about life, love, and death; and many young people are already sharing their enthusiasm for the message that John Green has shared through his book and will soon be sharing through the upcoming film.

Here are some youtubes around this book and film that you can view and see what you think - for yourself.
