The “Right to Die” discussion lives on

Dr. Jack Kevorkian has passed away, but the debate in which he played a crucial role most certainly remains thriving. Among the very interesting voices in the Right-to-Die discussion is Stan Goldberg, who has a new piece on the matter here on Mindful. 

“As a bedside hospice volunteer,” writes Goldberg in an earlier Mindful article, “The Hard Work of Dying,” “I’ve found that the ideas and emotions people carry with them through life often determine the quality of their death.”

Goldberg recently won a 2011 International Book Award in the Spirituality: Inspirational category for his book Lessons for the Living: Stories of Forgiveness, Gratitude, and Courage at the End of Life, published by Trumpeter, an imprint of Shambhala Publications. PX Media Group announced the winners and finalists of the book awards on May 11.
