Chronically ill man's lawyer calls for moratorium on assisted deaths in Canada

“Persons suffering with severe disabilities require necessary health care, assistance and compassion,” Berger wrote. “These crucial services are not always provided at times of most need or in such a way that relieves suffering; instead, persons with disabilities are being assisted to their death rather than being assisted with life.” Foley, who suffers from an incurable neurological disease called cerebellar ataxia, recently filed a landmark lawsuit against a London hospital, several health agencies, the Ontario government and the federal government. He alleges that health officials will not provide him with an assisted home care team of his choosing, instead offering, among other things, medically assisted death.
Foley said that although his disorder qualifies him for medically assisted death, he simply wants to live at home.

A Teenager Starting Over in Canada

Here's a short article with a video from the NYTimes on why it's important to keep our national borders open to refugees. I offer it as a tonic for those who wrongly believe that such refugees as Ibraheem are desiring nothing more an easy life or to cause us harm.

R.I.P. Someone Else

Someone Else: Our church was saddened to learn this week of the death of one of our most valued members, Someone ElseSomeone's passing creates a vacancy that will be difficult to fill. 
Else has been with us for many years and for every one of those years, Someone did far more than a normal person's share of the work. 
Whenever there was a job to do, a class to teach, or a meeting to attend, one name was on everyone's list, "Let Someone Else do it." 
Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results; "Someone Else can work with that group." 
It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the most liberal givers in our church. 
Whenever there was a financial need, everyone just assumed Someone Else would make up the difference. 
Someone Else was a wonderful person; sometimes appearing superhuman. 
Were the truth known, everybody expected too much of Someone Else
Now Someone Else is gone! We wonder what we are going to do. 
Someone Else left a wonderful example to follow, but who is going to follow it? 
Who is going to do the things Someone Else did? 
When you are asked to help in your church this year, remember -- they can't depend on Someone Else anymore. 
Many hands make little work!
