Thoughts shallow and deep

There is a young Marine lieutenant in the office. He is tall and redheaded and in a dark blue uniform, and I keep sneaking looks at him. Especially when he left to make a cellphone call...

1. The Federal government has absolutely no place in this, and no one should make political hay out of a family's tragedy.

2. To my husband and others: If I am *ever* (God forbid!) in such a position, do not do anything to hasten my death. Do not starve me to death or deny me essential care. Maybe do not do anything prolong life other than essential care and whatever is needed for comfort, and please consult our rabbi at every turn, but do not hasten it.


That's comforting to know--I've just run into lots and lots of atheists who are really strongly pro-euthanasia and it boggles my poor little brain.

I'm strongly pro-whatever-the-person-wants. But for myself, I would want to be kept alive to whatever limited degree possible, and I can't really comprehend emotionally the feeling of preferring to be left to die. I'll accept it for those people who tell me that's what they want, because it's their choice and not mine, but I don't 'get it', and I love my own life too much to want to let go of the tiniest bit of it, no matter how minimal.
