Interest Group - Caring Community
After a check-in, we will watch and discuss a 16-minute TED talk called "What makes life worth living in the face of death." If you want to watch it at home, the link is https://www.ted.com/talks/lucy_kalanithi_what_makes_life_worth_living_in_the_face_of_death?utm_source=newsletter_daily&utm_campaign=daily&utm_medium=email&utm_content=image__2017-05-16
We refer you to a remarkable article in the NY Times, "At His Own Wake, Celebrating Life and the Gift of Death": https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/25/world/canada/euthanasia-bill-john-shields-death.html , including readers' comments.
The article raises interesting questions about how we approach death and what we might achieve with the arrangements we make for our dying. Let's talk about it.
