2899 : Pain 2

My friend's mom is fighting for her life. She is as good as my mom too. 

In these last few months, I have seen her suffer from an advanced form of cancer. And then, I have also seen her choose not to take in any medicines. She has chosen voluntarily not to prolong life.

Now that is remarkable coming in this age, time, and generation. 

She is in extreme pain as she battles the last vestiges with cancer. Even in this battle, she is teaching us (the world she will eventually leave behind) lessons worth their weight in gold.

I don't know if I can ever be as brave as she is. I really don't know. But I hope and pray to hell that when I am dying - I choose to live (and die) with as much dignity, awareness, and beauty.
