Death is as much a reality as birth, growth, maturity, and old age. Death is the one certainty of life. If the time comes when I can no longer take part in decisions for my own future, let this statement stand as an expression of my wishes and directions, while I am still of sound mind.
If at such a time the situation should arise in which there is no reasonable expectation of my recovery from extreme physical or mental disability, I direct that I be allowed to die and not be kept alive by medications, artificial means or "heroic measures." I do, however, ask that medication be mercifully administered to me to alleviate suffering even though this may shorten my remaining life.
This statement is made after careful consideration and is in accordance with my strong convictions and beliefs. I want the wishes and directions here expressed carried out to the extent permitted by law. Insofar as they are not legally enforceable, I hope that those to whom this will is addressed will regard themselves as morally bound by these provisions.
This is merely a statement of my beliefs and wishes. It is not a legal document nor shall it replace or supersede the actual legal documents I have legally executed including a Living Will and a Health Care Power of Attorney.

Bennett was a distant third in the second round of voting among nearly 3,500 delegates, netting about 27 percent of the vote.FYI: "toxic" is career politicalese for "sour grapes". Enjoy your retirement Bob. Like I've said, Republicans have as much to fear this year as Democrats.
Wiping away tears, Bennett called the political atmosphere "toxic" and said it's, "Clear some of the votes I've cast have added to that toxic environment, looking back with one or two minor exceptions, I wouldn't cast any any differently, even if I knew it would cost me my career."
The three-term senator was targeted by Tea Party activists and other groups for supporting the first traunch of TARP, or Troubled Assets Relief Program.
Bennett, 76, is the first incumbent to lose his seat in Washington this year.

An elderly couple was attacked last Monday when trying to park their car in the Swedish town of Landskrona.I'm sorry? I don't think I heard that correctly? THEY fear violence? Can someone name me the last attack on an elderly Muslim couple parking their car? What about a Muslim cartoonist having his home invaded by an angry Christian or Jew wielding an axe because he was upset at a political cartoon? When was the last Muslim filmmaker stabbed to death in the street for making a movie critical of the Amish or Lutherans? Muslims constantly wail about their fear of backlash (over their OWN ACTS mind you) yet seem to be the only ones actually perpetrating the sort of violence they claim they're afraid of experiencing. Assholes.
The couple were trying to park, but another car was in their way. They honked and parked. But the young man (23) in the other car rolled down his window and asked why they honked. An altercation started. The young man became so upset, he threw the car door on the 71 year old man, Sven, who fell down. The young man then started beating the 71 year old.
The older man's 78 year old wife, Inger, tried to intervene, but was punched in the face and fainted.
The younger man fled in his car. The elderly couple were brought to the hospital. The 71 year was in shock and had injuries to his face and back. The 78 year old was brought to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. She died of her injuries Wednesday.

Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right...

The Day Between is significant because it exists...
"Not its number in the series, but its place, bears its significance as that day between the days which speaks solely neither of the cross nor of the resurrection, but simultaneously remembers the one and awaits the other, and guarantees that neither will be heard, or thought about, or lived, without the other." ~ Alan E. Lewis

My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

Two years ago, John McCain transformed Sarah Palin overnight from an obscure first-term Alaska governor into a national celebrity when he picked her as his vice presidential running mate.Unfortunately she probably will be able to help McCain't get back to the Senate. Sarah, Sarah, Sarah... wrong, wrong, wrong... I don't care if he's acting like a new pentecostal convert to conservatism post health care reform. McCain (of campaign finance reform, amnesty, and the Gang of 14) needs to go, go, go...
Now Palin is repaying the favor, putting her prestige on the line in an effort to help the four-term Arizona senator overcome his toughest re-election challenge ever.
The two will campaign together Friday for the first time since they lost the presidential race in 2008.

This hymn was written after several traumatic events in Spafford's life. The first was the death of his only son in 1871, shortly followed by the great Chicago Fire which ruined him financially (he had been a successful lawyer). Then in 1873, he had planned to travel to Europe with his family on the S.S. Ville du Havre, but sent the family ahead while he was delayed on business concerning zoning problems following the Great Chicago Fire. While crossing the Atlantic, the ship sank rapidly after a collision with a sailing ship, the Loch Earn, and all four of Spafford's daughters died. His wife Anna survived and sent him the now famous telegram, "Saved alone." Shortly afterwards, as Spafford traveled to meet his grieving wife, he was inspired to write these words as his ship passed near where his daughters had died.
Bliss called his tune Ville du Havre, from the name of the stricken vessel.
The Spaffords later had three more children, one of whom (a son) died in infancy. In 1881 the Spaffords, including baby Bertha and newborn Grace, set sail for Israel. The Spaffords moved to Jerusalem and helped found a group called the American Colony; its mission was to serve the poor. The colony later became the subject of the Nobel prize winning Jerusalem, by Swedish novelist Selma Lagerlöf.

Natoma Canfield, the cancer-stricken woman who has become a centerpiece of President Obama's push for health care reform, will not lose her home over her medical bills and will probably qualify for financial aid, a top official at the Cleveland medical center treating her told FoxNews.com. [note: I made a quick search of the other major news outlets and it doesn't appear any of them are eager to knock off Obama's halo on this story ~ Kevin]Mr. President, you might want to ask your staff (such as it is) to screen these people a little better before you stir the pot at these rallies. I know, I know the only thing that matters is that the story sounds good. Alright then... go for it.
Though Canfield's sister Connie Anderson said her sibling is afraid she’ll lose her house and Obama warned at an Ohio rally Monday that the patient is “racked with worry” about the cost of tests and treatment, she is already being screened for financial help.
Lyman Sornberger, executive director of patient financial services at the Cleveland Clinic, said “all indications” at the outset are that she will be considered for assistance.
“She may be eligible for state Medicaid … and/or she will be eligible for charity (care) of some form or type. … In my personal opinion, she will be eligible for something,” he said, adding that Canfield should not be worried about losing her home.
“Cleveland Clinic will not put a lien on her home,” he said. [note: Cleveland Clinic is a NOT for profit hospital, but no hospital will turn you away for inability to pay in an emergency situation and in a case like Natoma's every hospital will work with you to find financial aid or charity or get you on medicade. ~ Kevin]
