I find this comments in this thread interesting, dying is an essential part of life, its a path we all follow despite denial and resistance.
I am looking forward to reading this issue. When it comes to death many of us are terrified, unprepared. Fear pain, dementia and the inability to choose how it all ends.
I recently featured in a post on my blog 2 different videos on deathLessons from the death zone
Lord Philip Gouldhttp://www.tricitypsychology.com/when-i-die-lessons-from-the-death-zone/
and Stephen Jenkinson
who has made it his life's mission to change the way we die his film GriefWalker http://www.tricitypsychology.com/griefwalker-introducing-stephen-jenkinson/
is a thought provoking documentary on a charismatic spiritual man. It will take several viewings to fully absorb the nuances of the film. There is the powerful recounting of Stephens encounter with parents whose daughter is dying, and how he helped guide them to accept and experience her death in a non-clinical and real way. It was very moving.
Take the time to watch these I think you'll find it worth it. I hope that this issues will explore the difficult territory that families enter when old age and or terminal illness enters the picture.
