how seldom do we look on death on the dead – really look in the flesh close up and on the dying before the death the living death. welcome and observe – take ‘a look’ close up and personal through the eyes and ears that knew that know this is what it comes to, yes, face it. death and before it the dying will come to us all but on whose terms the few – fortunate – may be spared the dying the many will endure its ever tightening grip psychological torment physical humiliation before the ultimate merciful release.
i want to die with dignity at a time and in a manner of my own choosing who in their right mind would wish anything less. have we forgotten the pioneering german initiative of 75 years ago, the lessons we might learn – have we failed to embrace the potential of the Swiss way for a swift return to that inevitable nothing?
