I wanted to write about another interesting part to the article I just posted.
This article talks about the need for death to come out of the hiding and to view mortality as normal. Our society often sees death as "losing a battle" and as battle that needs to be "won".
Think about this......death can not be conquered. It will happen to each of us.
You can not buy your way out of it, nor can you think your way out of it. It is a NATURAL part of life.
Often, our loved ones are put through unwarranted medical procedures during illness or when they are dying, all for the sake of "winning" and "beating back death" (for the time being). We think of doctors and the medical procedures they offer, as "heroic". Saving us from the inevitable (again, for the time being).
Death is a natural and inevitable biological transition.
Lets start talking about death, dying and grief, so we can really start focusing of living life now!
