    Though i am in 7th grade, I recommend a better opening, like this for example.( please don t plagiarize) Aristrocle, a novel of sorts. Adventurous, witty, amusing , and humble can t sum it up but it does represent this novel Aristotle. Jarred Blanc does a detailed job describing the characters theory. (No your book, but you get the idea) Welcome!

    Death is the permanent end of the life of a biological organism. Death may refer to the end of life as either an event or condition. In many cultures and in the arts, death is considered a being or otherwise personified , wherein it is usually capitalized as "Death".

    Henceforth this was what I sought to discover: the authentic being, “the old Adam” whom the Gospels no longer accepted; the man whom everything around me—books, teachers, family and I myself—had tried from the first to suppress. And I had already glimpsed him, faint, obscured by their encrustations, but all the more valuable, all the more urgent. I scorned henceforth that secondary, learned being whom education had pasted over him.

    Jung (1959) [1]

    Death is psychologically as important as birth, and like it, is an integral part of life. As a doctor, I make every effort to strengthen the belief in immortality, especially with older patients when such questions come threateningly close. For, seen in correct psychological perspective, death is not an end but a goal, and life’s inclination towards death begins as soon as the meridian is passed.

    How we die is a profoundly personal journey. This section aims to help you understand what may happen as death approaches, the practical things you may need to think about when caring for a dying person, and how a death can affect family relationships.

    There were 529,655 deaths registered in England and Wales in 2015 , an increase of 5.6% compared with 2014. Two-thirds are aged 75 and over.

    “She wanted to be with her daughter.” This phrase was repeated often in the days following the death of Debbie Reynolds, who passed just.

    By Richard Gunderman, Indiana University and James W Lynch, University of Florida The news was bad. Mimi, a woman in her early 80s, had been under.

    Excerpt taken from Dr. Allan Kellehear’s Foreword: “ On Death and Dying” – 40 th  Anniversary Edition

    Kübler-Ross stressed the fact that her book was “not meant to be a textbook on how to manage dying patients”. It was also not “intended as a complete study of the psychology of the dying”.

    It’s not until the last case finishes that you feel the length of the day, the drag in your step. Those last few administrative tasks before leaving the hospital, however far post-meridian you stood, felt like anvils. Could they wait till tomorrow? No. A sigh, and Earth continued to rotate back toward the sun.

    But the years did, as promised, fly by. Six years passed in a flash, but then, heading into chief residency, I developed a classic constellation of symptoms — weight loss, fevers, night sweats, unremitting back pain, cough — indicating a diagnosis quickly confirmed: metastatic lung cancer. The gears of time ground down. While able to limp through the end of residency on treatment, I relapsed, underwent chemo and endured a prolonged hospitalization.

    The thought of dying often times evokes fear and apprehension in people. Thinking of others dying makes our own mortality very real. Research has shown that dying people are ostracized from society and even avoided by close friends and family.

    In light of this, it is easy to see why many dying patients report feeling isolated and alone. This is certainly not the type of death most of us would choose.

    One of the most important people on the palliative care team isn''t a doctor or a nurse. In fact, he or she doesn''t have a medical degree at all. It''s the chaplain.

    A chaplain is typically an ordained minister of a particular faith -- Roman Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, or another. On the palliative care team, he or she serves the spiritual needs of all patients and family members, no matter what religious belief they have or don''t have.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson—the prominent astrophysicist and science popularizer whose reboot of Cosmos is currently airing on Fox and the National Geographic Channel—was asked a few years ago “which books should be read by every single intelligent person on the planet.” Tyson’s #1 pick, the Bible, would have been unremarkable if not for his flippant parenthetical rationale for this choice: “to learn that it’s easier to be told by others what to think and believe than it is to think for yourself.”

    Some might argue that Darren Aronofsky’s Noah , with its wild elaborations upon the text of Genesis, can only further contribute to biblical illiteracy. Yet for all its dramatic and cinematic liberties, Noah is profoundly engaged with its source material. Noah takes Genesis seriously as a text worth reading carefully and thinking about deeply in its own right.

    "Blood Diamond" takes place in Sierra Leone. Death appears in almost every scene in the movie. People with nothing to eat lie on the ground waiting to die. No one helps; no one notices. Those who can, run for their lives. Many are captured by the rebels and are either taken into slavery, if they are strong, or killed, if they were weak. Children were trained to become rebels, who are taught to kill. You need one more sentence in this paragraph--a thesis statement that tells what the rest of your essay will be about. The thesis is the most important sentence in the whole essay--make a strong argument that you support with the rest of the essay. Check your conclusion. You have some good ideas there. Then go through and proofread the rest of your sentences. Many are not complete sentences. Sorry, I m not able to send email. I hope you get this! Yes, a thesis is a statement of the argument that you are going to spend your essay proving. So if you are writing for history, you might say: While the Civil War was bloodier in terms of men killed, the Vietnam War did more to divide the country in two. Or for English: The character of Brian changed from the beginning of the book to the end; he came of age. Then you spend the rest of the essay proving your thesis.
