Pull the plug if you're in a coma?

If you live in the Chicago area:

I've received an email from my former place of worship, Unity in Chicago, about a workshop next week on creating a living will. A living will is a document which lets you decide whether or not to be kept on artificial life support. Often these documents also appoint someone to make health care decisions on your behalf if you're unable to do so (and I definitely want to do that).

Maybe you've already taken care of this and if so, good for you. I haven't. By the end of this workshop, we'll have created our living will. Once that's done, I know I'll rest easier. Ahhh, now I can relax and slip into a coma.

No, seriously I believe having a living will is very important just like any other legal document you might put in place for JUST IN CASE. I'm there next Wednesday, August 30th.
