Death- A Monthly Discussion  

Are we doomed to be victims to the inevitable? Silently passive to our fate? Is it possible to be an agent to one's impending death? Most persons prefer not to discuss death directly but rather deny and avoid any personal engagement with it, especially sharing with others. Most work feverishly to keep busy, distracted from this personal coming event.

A possible path to being an agent is the openness to reflect with others our rational and irrational concerns. This is not a presentation, as a monthly discussion based on articles by George Yancy of Emory University, published in the New York Times. Participants will be asked to read one article each month, which will be emailed prior to meeting.
