What about euthanasia?


I read about Dr. Jack Kevorkian dying.  I’m surprise he didn’t commit suicide.  All his life he helped people end their lives by euthanasia.  He spent 18 years in jail for helping very sick people end their lives.


In my opinion, if someone is very sick and is no longer able to even sit up in bed, he/she should do what he feels is right.  What is the point of sticking around to suffer if you know the end is near.  My sister was very sick and died of ovarian cancer.   I saw how much suffering she went through.  She spent almost three years getting chemo therapy.  She put up with all the chemo because she loved her family and wanted to stay around and see her children grow up.  Toward the end, she was a skeleton of her former self.  She was so sick, it  made me very sad to look at her.  I never knew what to say to her.  What do you say to someone you love  and is dying? I really never thought she  die.  But she did.  She died in 1997.  One regret I don’t have is that I was in the hospital holding her hand when she died.  She did not die alone.  The worse part was seeing the doctor remove the tubes that kept her alive.  That’s when it hit me that she was really gone!


I think my sister would have opted for euthanasia if she had suffered for too long.  I remember during the time that she was sick, she told me  she thought Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had arranged her own death.   A thought that had never occurred to me.   So I think my sister might have thought of euthanasia.  Jacqueline K. Onassis also died of cancer.  And I think my sister was right about J.K.O. arranging her own death.


In regard to how I feel about euthanasia, I feel it is  up to every person to decide how he/she  handles his/her own death.  It is not for me to judge how someone ends his/her life. I know some people are against someone committing suicide or euthanasia because of religious beliefs.  Every one is entitle to his own opinion.   It is only when death is close that we can decide what we want to do.

Gang Stalking- Off Topic – PostaDay 2011 – Describe your first encounter with a celebrity.

I can’t remember my first encounter  with a celebrity. In New York, you see famous people walking around all the time. I’ve seen Presidents, famous singers, authors, etc. But the first one  I encountered and was impressed with was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Because I was attending college,  I worked temp jobs when I wasn’t in class.  I was asked by my  temp agency if I wanted to work  at Doubleday books as an administrative assistant. I said sure.

The person at the temp agency told me how  to dress and gave me a work description to read before I began work on a Monday.

I arrived early for work on Monday.   I was introduced to  the man for whom I would be working by a woman from Human Resources.  I don’t remember his name, but he was Canadian and  had recently arrived  from Canada. He was extremely tall and good-looking; almost looked like a matinée idol. From the get-go, he and I worked very well together.  It was a very good Monday start.

The next day, I answered his phone and someone who sounded very much like Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis asked for my boss. I Said to her, “May I ask whose calling?  She answered, “Mrs. Onassis.” Sure enough, it was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

While I worked at Doubleday, I got to see a lot of Mrs. Onassis. She often phoned my boss  with questions. She would also send him Post- it notes via office mail. My boss would read them and return them to me “as done” and to throw them  out.  I often thought of keeping the Post-it notes because I thought some  would be worth money some day.  But I never kept any of them.  I didn’t think it was ethical.  If I had to do it again, I would have kept the Post-it notes.  Those Post- its  were part of history.  I feel I threw away historical information, especially now that she’s gone.

Mrs. Onassis  was very down to earth and did not act as if she was a celebrity. When coffee break time came, she got off her seat and walked down to the coffee cart, stood in line and got her own coffee. I used to see her in the bathroom looking at herself in the mirror and wonder what she thought when she looked at herself. She would take the elevator just like everyone else.  She always had her office door slightly ajar. During the time I was working at Doubleday, she always wore brown and black clothes, usually pants, and flat shoes.  She was taller in person.   I always thought her hair was dark, but it had a lot of red  high-lites.  And she really did look like all the photos I’d seen of her.  She had a shy way about her and was very quiet.  She was definitely a classy woman!

Mrs. Onassis brought history alive for me  by her presence at Doubleday.
