When will you Die. I heard a man once when he was upset at not finding the proper papers, Insurance and deeds, etc.after his father’s death, say, “Dad thought he was going to live forever.”
That got me to thinking, in a way we all think we will live forever. Think of it. I doubt if anyone reading this seriously thinks they will die today. Maybe next year, next month, next week or even ‘I could die tomorrow’. We always think of the term tomorrow, but as I have said on here, ‘Tomorrow never comes.’ So effectively we think we are gonna live forever.
Now with that out of the way, The above thinking is when you are up and around, maybe bad health, but still getting around. The thinking above is appropriate, and is what we should think. We should not go around gloomy, thinking I could die today.
I have had a friend and an acquaintance, who chose their time to die. When I talk about that Sherry doesn’t like it. But She and I do have a living will, we do not want to be kept alive by artificial means. WE know that there could come a time when we will not be able to make a decision and we do not want our sons to have to make the decision to remove the machines.
At deaths I have heard of terrible accusations by siblings, ‘YOU KILLED MY DAD!’ there is enough pain for someone must make the decision, without bearing the brunt of someone’s anger.
The times I am talking about is when YOU or I know, we are about to be a burden, a vegetative state. Would you end your own life?
A nice guy, a man I met only once. A successful business man, learned he had inoperable cancer, no chance of real success by any treatment. He put his house in order. Everything taken care of, then took his own life. He had seen cancer up close and now he was seeing it personal.
I have no stones to throw. His wife was devastated. She would have gladly taken care of him, he knew that, but he knew she would suffer either way, he took the way out he thought was best all round. Not sure I could do that, but I am not positive it is wrong.
I have used the theory that no one is in their right mind when they take their own life, so they are not responsible.
It is proven by a lot of politicians and ministers, you can justify about any position, IF YOU PUT THE RIGHT SPIN ON IT.
Don’t get the wrong idea, I am going to live forever, so I won’t ever have that problem.
I did near one old man say, if he had to die, he wanted to be shot by a jealous young husband……
When he was 125 yrs old.
(For me, it would be Sherry, the jealous husband wouldn’t get the chance. )
How low can they go
