After listening to a TedTalk by Alison Killing about architecture, hospitals, and dying, I was struck by this quote:
“If we want better buildings for dying, then we have to talk about it, but because we find the subject of death uncomfortable, we don't talk about it, and we don't question how we as a society approach death.”
This is so true and can be said of anything having to do with death or dying; If we don’t open the door and get past the discomfort around discussing these things, the important questions remain unanswered. I want to have some say in how my care is handled, and I bet you do too.
