Life and death

A powerful, succinct and touching post by Rob Paterson: The Right to Life. Snippet:

It has been the custom of most traditional societies for individuals to take a responsibility for the amount of burden that they place on their community. There is a dignity in deciding when it is time. There is an acceptance in the community that death is inevitable so how you die becomes more important than life itself. Death is surely the greatest experience that we all share.

By denying it – what do we deny? Do we not deny life itself?
