Gratitude Day 5: Inspiration
Inspiration: The decisions being made by this young lady has made national news. You see, Brittany Maynard was given a terminal diagnosis of brain cancer. With treatment options being exhausted, she made the very difficult and personal decision to relocate to an area that allows for physician assisted suicide. She has also decided to make her actions public, creating a media sensation.
I personally draw inspiration from her acts of courage and her willingness to take this traditionally taboo subject and make it public. I am hopeful that some day, hopefully during my lifetime, that the choice and decision she made becomes an accepted practice for those that believe this is the right course for their own situation.
Rest in Peace Brittany. You were indeed an inspiration to many!
