When to pull the plug?

The ever so smart 'them' tell us to have the important discussions ahead of time. You know the discussions about life support, casket choices, funeral ceremonies, and all that. Those uncomfortable discussions that should not be avoided.

The young man in this video was taken off life support at his request and died shortly after. You need to watch the video to get the whole story.

I fully support this decision. He made his opinions known prior to his fall. He repeated his wishes twice to the doctors and to his family members.

I am so glad that there was no dispute, no need to call in lawyers and get a judge to sign off. This is the way that these decisions should take place - with no fanfare, no discussion - just the confirmation needed.
