    Thoughts on death with degnity!

    I am throwing this out there and would like thoughts on death with dignity, Some states already have it and several are going to vote on it in the midterm election. I feel like it should be an option and hope Illinois approves it although they aren't voting on it this year but Indiana is. I know not everyone agrees with it but not everyone agrees on anything in this imperfect world we live in anyway.

      BoiseB, I didn't take any offense to your statement about going to XXX.

      I googled the meaning of the poem, and I learned that the man who wrote it had a heavy drinking problem which led to his early death. I wondered why you would allow another human's writings to affect you in a bad way. He was troubled himself.

      I will write you on your Wall about God.

      Barbara, my undergraduate degree was in English. Even though the emphasis was on writing, I was exposed to a variety. I frankly Dylan Thomas influenced my in a bad way any more that the Bible had influenced me. When one studies literature there is a lot of poetry about death, ranging from the humorour "Cremation of Sam Magee" to the "Divine Comedy" The Dylan Thomas's poem really spoke to me. As for heavy drinking well many literary figures were heavy drinkers particularly in that time.
      In reality my thoughts about what happens in the afterlife comes from the Bible.

      BoiseB, I've also studied literature, but it seemed the poem told you something it didn't say to me. I'm glad to know you wouldn't be influenced by him. You won't be going to XXX if you believe the Bible.
