For those not in the know, 29-year-old newlywed Brittany Maynard has brain cancer. In April, she was given six months to live. Rather than drag it out, she has decided to choose the day of her death for herself; namely, Nov 1, 2014. It’s a controversial decision that has a lot of people vocalizing opinions in favor and against her. I decided I might as well join the noise and weigh in with my thoughts, so here they are.
Life is precious.
Death is sad.
I never have been and hope I never will be in her situation.
Unless you are or have been in her situation, I don’t think either of us are qualified to say what she should do in this incredibly difficult situation.
