One man's take on euthanasia--1993.


To my loved ones,
            I have known a mother’s milk that fills a boy’s bowl. I’ve known the fatherly ilk that nurtures the soul. I’ve broken bread with defeat, regretted my hospitality, and on its way, I’ve hurried it. I’ve snapped at the heals of victory, embraced my prey and have taken it home to bury it. I’ve known the piercing blade of a woman’s scorn and the soothing glaze of the women to whose allegiance I have sworn. But most of all, I’ve know that elusive love that no one of thing could put asunder…and for true love, she dangled it before me to sustain the chase and the hunger.
            And so it is my wish…that when my mind has trickled away or even over flown its banks. When I’ve turned inward on myself or outwards with face and hands against the glass walls of a tank. When I’m entombed in a hospital bed or breathing a mechanical breath and intravenously fed. When the pain of my continued existence is greater than the pain of my death and when dignity is the only faculty that I have left. Please…
…Pull the plug

The idea is to pull it yourself my friend ! Way before you loose control and someone has plugged you in ... when things are still good and there is no reason for you to do so, and you say good bye on the best of days. That is when you have real power! The will to power is the will to be free. Only then you have really done something! Your life has real infinte value when you thus consummate and celebrate it all!

Bone of us want to linger in pain and sickness. Good thinking here.
I hope I go fast and easily too when my time comes just as my hubby Tom did right in front of my eyes on 8 17 07.

Well done. A convincing and beautifully written argument for euthanasia. That is exactly why I am for it.
