The elderly population

I was watching the Tv this morning – Live about the decisions doctors have to make such as to help and elderly patient live a few more years which a little comfort or to lengthen a younger persons life by say 40years.

Even though I understand that it must be very difficult to decide on such things, I wish more people would simply consider the patient and what they want.

It would be respectful, I believe, to take note of our elders and their wishes as most have paid into this society after all. Our older generation are not invisible, they have some of the most profound insight into life.

I would like to see some of them on a chat show to ask them what they think. I am sure it would be most enlightening.

It does make me wonder if some of the individuals making these decisions incorrectly believe that they are excempt from growing old.
