For this discussion board, consider your own efforts and discoveries in the duration of the course. We have learned so much about different culture, ages, and types of death. Your perspective most likely may have been challenged or changed on a particular death situation. Write a paragraph (not less than 250 words) on how your understanding about a significant death experience in your life has been changed, improved or affected by what you have learned in this course. You may also refer back to DB2 and use that as an example or select something new. Cite at least one author, concept, theory, definition, research or model and put the page number from text in parenthesis in your paragraph.
The following is an example:
“Since taking this course, I have been thinking about when my father died. I was only 19 years old and had three brothers and sisters. My father died in just a few hours due to a blood vessel rupturing in his brain. I was the only person with my father in the intensive care as my mother and siblings were out of town. My experience in being with my dad when he died, has been clarified by what our text authors wrote on page ___. They wrote, when we are with someone who is dying, “we confront our own mortality…and learn how precious and uncertain life is.” This has given me insight into what I felt while being with my dad when he died.”
Your “significant experience” with a loss or death can be
Individual: loved one, friend, divorce, miscarriage, stillbirth
Mass occurrence: something like the 9/11 tragedy, Iraqi or Afghan war, Tsunami tidal wave disaster, London bombings, Virginia Tech shootings, Tucson shootings,
Acts of Nature: flood, tornado, fire, et cetera.
