Thinking about death and dying is a wonderful reflective mirror for life and living. For when we contemplate death and dying, we are asked to also assess the decisions we are making relative to life and living.
The examining of choices also extends to those around us. Often death and dying can bring up an examination of how a person chose to live his or her life or is choosing to handle death and dying. This examining of choices includes, if the choice presents itself, how we plan to manage and handle our own death and dying.
