How Doctors Die

In order to learn the art of dying , one must know completely — the art of living. — S. N. Goenka

~~~~ Good News of the Day: “In his last few months of life after discovering that lung cancer had spread into his brain, my older cousin Torch went to Disneyland for the first time, ate his favorite foods, had no serious pain, and remained high-spirited. Torch wasn’t a doctor, but like many doctors who have access to medical care when diagnosed with a fatal disease, he chose state of the art end-of-life care: death with dignity.” This honest reflection by Dr. Ken Murray of USC illuminates why doctors ‘go gentle into that good night’ when confronted with their own death, and how it is possible for all to spend the last moments of life in peace and in the presence of others.

~~~~ Be The Change: How would fear influence you in ‘going gently’? Practice the art of living today.
