    Death, Thou Shalt Die!

    Holy Sonnets: Death, be not proud By John Donne 1572 – 1631 Death, be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so; For those whom thou think’st thou dost overthrow Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me. From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be, Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow, And soonest our best men with thee do go, Rest of their bones, and soul’s delivery. Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men, And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell, And poppy or charms can make us sleep as well And better than thy stroke; why swell’st thou then? One short sleep past, we wake eternally And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die. Source:  Poetry Foundation

Many are shocked by the idea of this scene, however, everyone is the owner of their own life, believe it or not, and everyone should be able to choose when to leave the world. Only life exists in reality. Death is a complete illusion. Death is merely a change of our physical vestment and nothing more. The ability to end our life, when we voluntarily choose to do so, should be provided in a completely safe environment and in a completely painless and comfortable way in order to exit this world when we voluntarily…

    Forrest Gump

    This is an excellent movie to reflect on what is seen on the screen,  the time it represents: the emergence of Elvis Presley, the Vietnam War dilemma, Kennedy and Nixon and many other events that will remind us about what Forrest goes through in this epic and great American film. Forrest breaks down at the grave of his girlfriend Jenny and tells her his most intimate thoughts about his life. It is truly emblematic of the main theme that runs throughout the film: acceptance, regard for the present moment and lessons learned. Details of the film:  Forrest Gump
