This is an interesting thought.....why should Death Education be considered more taboo than Sex Education?
In the Westernized culture, "Death, Dying and Grief" are subjects most people avoid. Discussing these matters are "downers, icky, irrelevant". How does this kind of thinking affect our actual experiences with death? For most, it is an impending sense of fear and terror of an event (death), that is 100% Guaranteed, to happen to each and every one of us.
Is it beneficial for you to pretend that death doesn't exist? Do we, as a society, have a duty to discuss death and dying openly, so as to reduce the negative emotions around them? Is it wise to let the fear of death excuse us from exploring death?
