Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

thanks for posting that, it was sad but I am glad I watched her video. She may just bring some change... how stong of her to record that video.

I keep saying I am grateful my Dad passed away with barely any pain, it gives me relief and I think that most people would want to die painless too. It does not always happen though.

Wow, what a brave young woman!!

I truly believe in her plight to be allowed to die with dignity, I feel so sad that she was cheated of that right!!

Now we must believe she is truly resting in peace...
