In an interview with NPR, Father John J. Paris, professor of bioethics at Boston College, delivers the most cogent advice I have heard to date on how we can deal with the end of life issues. He repeats a simple wisdom told him by his grandmother and her voice from the past brings clarity and direction. Bravo!
I am glad to hear islands of thoughtful conversation emerging from the rancor surrounding the sad story of Terry Shiavo's broken family.
