I didn't want to read the article itself, too depressing. The headline alone brought shivers up my spine. It also made me wonder, we're all going to face death one day, do I prefer facing it through a prolonged illness, knowing I'm dying? Or face it in an instant, not see it coming. I couldn't answer it, I still can't.
Maybe it's best not think about the inevitable and simply enjoy every minute of life we are given. All that matters anyway is NOW. I've often referred to one of my all time favorite books by Ekhart Tolleto be reminded of this fact.
