Welcome to Deathtalker.com
WE CAN TALK ABOUT OUR MOST INTIMATE THOUGHTS AND FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTS ON MOBILE PHONES IN CROWDED TRAINS AND TRAMS FOR EVERYONE TO HEAR.
We talk about the quality and quantity of our orgasms in the pub with our friends. We talk to our kids about drugs and alcohol, stranger danger and safe sex. We talk openly about religion, politics and world events. No longer is any subject taboo… except one.
We don’t talk about death because we think of ourselves as immortal. We have faith that no matter what is wrong with us, there will be a treatment that will fix it. We tell our kids that death is something that happens to old people. And so we live in a bubble of denial, hoping that if we don’t think or talk about death, we can avoid it. So when death happens we are poorly informed, badly prepared and often suffer our grief in isolation because we have no one to talk to about how we are feeling.
The time has come for us to face death, to inform ourselves and to build our ability to show compassion to the people around us who suffer in silence and isolation.
Information leads to understanding. Understanding helps us to nurture ourselves and those around us when someone we love dies. Understanding death and grief will help you to embrace LIVING. So lets start talking!
