Americans have a very hard time with death it seems to me. Their view of death is as skewed as their views on sex. Many people fight death (beyond having any quality of life) until they are completely hooked up to machines. To me, that is obscene
My father died a cowards death. In life he was a cruel man. In death he showed his true colors. He was as disgusting in his death as he was in his life.
Now someone close is on the verge and clinging to any possible hope. To what end?
Why can’t we accept death and embrace it with dignity?
