This morning while eating my toast and yoghurt, I was flicking through the Herald and found the story of Dr John Elliott, a terminally ill adopted Australian who flew to Switzerland to medically end his own life.
It wasn’t easy to read, and quite eerie to read his final letter. But I can’t help but feel total awe for this man who had such a strong conviction to put an end to his pain that he had a journalist and photographer cover it.
I hope that the article generates some controversy and discussion and helps to change some minds about the topic.
And I hope that if I ever reach that stage of my life that have the same conviction.
