I was talking to a friend last night. We were talking about death and dying as we both know people who are near death now. We share the same near death experiences and both have witnessed the death of a love one. Often people aren't prepared for dying.
We don't know how to die because it us a subject we avoid. I now realize that when I die I will leave it all behind and let someone else figure it out.
I may leave a will. That might be good or I will secretly sign over the pink slip in my truck to someone who deserves it if I know in advance that I'm dying.
I think everyone needs to think about dying. How do you want to die? Do you want endless medical interventions? Do you want to quietly fade away? Is there anything you want to leave for others? Have you said your goodbyes? Have you said I love you enough? Is there any point in time when you might consider assisted suicide? They made Jack Kevorkian was made out as a criminal but he was providing a service to those seeking escape from endless suffering of medical science.
We are all going to die sometime. We never know when. Be thoughtful.
