Letting go.

There has been a story in the news lately which has taken several twists. It involves two families, one patient whose condition is often described as “chronic vegetative state”, the courts, and now the state legislature and the governor. It has prompted many interesting “water cooler” discussions at the office. What is “life support”? What does it mean to be kept alive by “artificial means”? Should assisted suicide be legal; and if so, would it make this case moot?

Not your typical “water cooler” conversation, is it?

I wonder how many other folks are talking about things they never thought about before. I wonder how this case has shaped their outlook. I hope that everyone involved in the case can find peace.
