not that i can remember although in Hawaii i saw a homeless man drunk who looked dead and everyone around called paramedics. The man ended up waking up after a few minutes of shaking although the paramedics seemed to know his name before they got there. go figure
Yes, I used to work in a funeral home - for a very brief time. We were required to come in the back door and that was where they bodies they were working on were laid out. Creeped me out. When they told me one afternoon that they would be out of the office and I was going to have to help somebody when they delivered a body - I said no, and quit soon after that.
Yes I have, it was very sad. I was living in a downtown area of Baltimore and I went out to walk my dog the morning after a really bad ice and snow storm the night before. One of the homeless who I did not recognize was laying in the alley on a steam area. It's very sad to see others crying around someone and no one called the parametics. It is an image I will never forget - one that sparked my drive to help out with homeless and others in need of help. Especially our children. To this day I can't help but think about who in his life will be missing him, loving him even though he is no longer with us.
no dead person as the person never die, but i've seen many dead bodies for sure!
Yes, unfortunately I've seen so many dead people over the years. As a nurse it's just part of the job. Things have changed a bit now in nursing I think, but one of our main jobs, in addition to caring for patients who were dying, when death had ocurred you had to perform what was called 'Last Offices'. This was basically washing the body - at one time some body orifices were also packed - and putting a temporary mortuary shroud on the patient. You made them as presentable as you could for the family members who wanted to see their loved one. I must have been just over 16 years old the first dead person I saw, but as I said, I have seen so many over the years.

Would you help a person who was starving today?If you seen a homeless person on the ground would you help him or her up onto their feet, would you create a shelter if you had the money to do so for them, would you feed the hungry if you we're in a position to do so. Pondering questions, and if...

In the wake of the latest attempted airline bombing, this seems to be the debate of the day. Sure, the airport body scaners are intrusive. The person that scans you gets to see your body. And yeah, that's all of your body. But what's even more upseting to most parents, is the fact that the person...

Should I feel bad for not visiting a relative in the hospital?A family member is in the hospital, unfortunately passing away. She apparently is a different personal mentally and physically now. I want to remember them how they were, not how they are now. I saw my mother before she...

What makes us more inclined to help some people and not others?What would cause you to help a homeless person or a stray animal but not a family member who has an issue that somehow just rubs you the wrong way?
