32. The problem is we're barely learning how to die

I think older civilizations understood it better. Americans don't seem to know how.

I'm reminded of a New Yorker cartoon of a woman giving birth, and instead of the placenta, someone says "wait, here come's the owner's manual!"

But there's few manuals on dying.

I'm not intending to whine, but I do want to open up conversations about this stage of life which few of us understand.
