Although we are surrounded by death on a daily basis, few people choose to openly discuss the topic. This semester, we will be using our blog as a way to jump start conversation about death and dying. Our blog is designed to challenge our current ideas about death and to examine our personal attitudes toward end-of-life. Throughout the semester we will use our blog as a medium to continue class discussions and to delve deeper into the subject matter. Our blog is an informal place where we can learn, explore, and develop new ideas. So, let’s get blogging!
