Suffocate or jump?
The horrible things that happened on 9/11 made some people feel as if their final decision in life would be to either suffocate and burn to death or jump. What would you do? What does your belief system tell you to do?
Wow you do ask the hard ones, don't you? Until I was in that situation, I am not entirely positive what I would do. I am absolutely petrified of heights and I wonder if faced with eminent death, if I could bring myself to jump. I honestly do not know.
Wow, that is a tough one. I would jump. Not jumping is pretty much certain death. If you jump, and God willing, there may be divine intervention, you might land somewhere and live, not break every bone in your body. You would never know unless you jumped.
This is a really deep question. I have an issue with suicide as well but in a situation like 9/11, more than likely I would jump. I'm sure most of us would like to die as peaceful as possible. Suffocating in a burning building is a horrible way to go. I'd jump and what ever seconds I have left, I'd pray for forgiveness.

Unfortunately, I was in a cranky mood all morning. But then the sun came out and I was better. We had another beautiful sunny day here and it's supposed to be a sunny weekend.

I believe this simply because it appears that everyone is looking for salvation. They are so afraid of life that thier only choice is to look into what appears more pleasing. So what can be more pleasing than having to live forever. (as if that were so much fun) I would hate to live for ever...

Why decide on euthanasia, when palliative care relieves pain?If palliative care relieves physical suffering, affirms life and regards dying as a normal and spiritual process, then why consider a "mercy killing?" Is it actually fear or depression that truly causes a person to want to die...
