Mid Life Crisis Is When...

Tragedy is never far away

Tragic auto accident
While at yesterday’s card tournament, a Dominos pizza delivery employee made an appeal for donations.

 

Out of nowhere, we can be blind-sided by a harsh reality. A week ago, on his first shift as a Dominos pizza delivery driver, a young father was hit by a woman, driving on a revoked license, going 100 mph while fleeing police. He died instantly.

No one can make you do this every morning

Orlando Sunrise
A few minutes ago, January 30, 2016.

 

Yesterday marked 30 years to the day for the Challenger disaster.

A few days before that marked three years since a friend took his life at work.

Almost daily, each of us is faced with world events and personal events that are painful and senseless.

No one is immune to this distant (world) and close (personal) pain and confusion.

We must greet the day with joy, hope, and gratitude.

Well, we don’t have to, and that’s the point of this post.

Things I Learned Yesterday

Here’s the real 9/11, and it’s happening to too many Americans

2013 Disney World tee shirt featuring popular Disney characters
They know I love Disney, but do they know my end-of-life wishes?

 

Here’s a very real clone of 9/11, and it’s happening everyday, to too many Americans:

Excerpt from MyBestBuddyMedia site:

Most dying patients don’t want their family troubled with end-of-life responsibilities. Sadly, many never share their wishes. This gives critical decisions to doctors or family members who may not know their loved ones preferences. One example is the desire for most Americans to die at home. According to 2009 government data, only 24% of people age 65 and over actually do so.

Does my Family know? Do we have, if nothing else, a living will? And is it easy for someone we love to find?
