Living in unity between birth and death
It's natural and appropriate that we give a lot of attention to the beginning and the end of life. Birth announcements celebrate a new life born. Obituaries announce a life that has been lived.

Bogus statistics and crude rhetoric
My heart certainly goes out to Cindy Cashen in the tragic death of her father.

Many are passionate about continuing this effort to make even greater strides. We must not confuse passion with rhetoric.
