John McCain – A Profile in Courage In Life and in Death

Aug 27, 2018 by Susan Ducharme Hoben
Unlike John McCain, we as a society have not come to terms with dying as a natural part of living.  Observing the words and actions of those dealing with a terminal prognosis, whether we know them personally or only as figures in the public spotlight, can be an emotionally powerful way to gain new insights. Fear prevents us from even thinking about death, let alone talking about it or planning for it. But the more we know about other people’s journeys, the less we will fear our own. Perhaps, with each new experience that is shared, we will become more comfortable with the inevitable.
