There are two parts to this week’s discussion.
Over the past 2 months, we’ve addressed many issues and topics related to End of Life Issues and Perspectives. We have seen how many aspects of death and dying vary across time and across cultures.
Technology plays an important role in these changes. Based on this week’s Learning Resources, as well as what you have learned in the class so far, what is one significant change related to death, dying, and bereavement that you think might happen over the next decade?
You can choose any issue or phenomenon that interests you. An excellent response will be at least 2-3 paragraphs in length, using complete sentences and concise language. Please cite at least 2 of this week’s Learning Resources in your response.
Please be sure to use APA citations in your text and to include your reference list. When you refer to and/or discuss any resources, you need to include a citation for that source, such as: (Braincraft, 2015). For more info on APA style, visit the APA Citations and Style module in this online classroom.
The study of death and dying compels us to think about life and living. In Week 7, we saw that being proactive about death planning is as much about living on your own terms as it about putting your affairs in order. Undoubtedly, addressing the practical aspects of death reduces headaches for those who are left behind. But beyond wills and estates, our exploration of death inevitably raises questions about legacy. Once we are gone, how will we be remembered?
The second part of this discussion is to compose your own obituary. This can be an obituary that reflects your life thus far, or an aspirational obituary that reflects the life you want to be remembered for. Don’t know where to start? Search the Internet for tips on writing an obituary (remember to cite any references you use). You do not need to include any details that you don’t have (e.g. date or cause of death) and there is no length requirement. It can be as short or as long as you like.
Once you have written your obituary, analyze it. What does this statement about death say about what is important to you in life? Are you “living up” to your obituary?
