What I'm reading

By Fareed Zakaria

“Marcy Glanz had been battling ovarian cancer since early 2011, but in late November she was given grim news by her doctors – her cancer was so severe that she had only several weeks to live,” writes Corey Kilgannon in the New York Times.

“‘Many of us die too soon and have no chance to say goodbye, or we have a long, ugly painful demise,’ said her husband, Marion Stewart. ‘Hers was neither of those.’

“To ease the pain of death on herself and her loved ones, Ms. Glanz had a dying wish: She essentially wanted a monthlong farewell party that mixed frivolity and friendship, laughter and tears.”

    God Bless you and your family Marcy! And its cases like this that makes me feel that Dr Kevorkian had the correct solution. If of course it was wanted by that person. And i believe it would be the option i would want.
