    KiwK Dying with Dignity

    in Entertainment

    Today's show is a tough one, as I have a very special guest on the show to discuss her feelings about the controversial Death with Dignity program offered by Oregon as an option to terminal patients with 6months to live or less. It is a lethal dose of barbituates self administered by the patient who is looking die when THEY say, around the people THEY choose and without the pain they most certainly would face, otherwise. My guest, a close personal friend, is the widow of a man who had the same disease Brittany Maynard had, only unlike Brittany Maynard, her husband did not have that option. We will take a very emotional and painful look at the weeks leading up to and the day of her husband's death.


     


    I will take calls, even if you oppose Death with Dignity. HOWEVER, you better be respectful or your off air, no warning given.


     


    Thank you for listening.

    Death with Dignity Movement – A Catholic response

    in Christianity

    True death with dignity is trusting in our Lord God that He is seeing to the perfect timing of our personal death. We find dignity in God’s will. Nowhere else!


    I’m afraid the so-called “death with dignity” movement has the potential to become a rapidly growing problem. We Christians and all those who wish to follow the truth of Jesus and His Church or even just the truth of natural law have a duty to do all we can to bring the light of truth to the culture on this vital life issue.


     Jesus literally put the death we fear so much to death so we can be happy with Him forever. Nothing good comes from trying to take shortcuts form the cross. 


    Our heavenly Father is bringing a great good out of our pain and suffering when we unite it to Jesus on the cross.


    As very horrible as it was I thank God for my cancer. It was a gift like no other gift that had the efficacy of bringing me closer to God than I ever would have any other way. It also brought my family closer to God. And there is no price too high to grow in union with God. I can frankly say that I would not trade my cancer journey for anything.

    Respect and Dignity 101

    in Education

    In the beginning there is the Emergency Room (ER). Away we go – off on a journey – trying our best to re-build our shattered lives in a society that ill equips us to deal with our new selves. The loss. The Pain. The Fear. The lack of self-confidence and self-esteem makes everything harder! Families caught in the middle desperately trying to help and understand our issues and new lives. Friends want to help but don't know how. We try – we fail – some will try again – some succeed – some don’t. To become a victim creates a partnership with dysfunction, and the brotherhood of misery and distain! We must look deep inside ourselves to find the discipline to persevere and not become a victim. The road to recovery begins with the person standing in front of the mirror. It also takes personal responsibility to get better and move on. We must hold ourselves accountable for our actions and well being. It is our obligation to rebuild our lives and not be held back when people don’t understand the consequences of a brain injury. We must find hope – because hope enables us to try again – you can make it – keep trying until you succeed! Learn from this experience and move on. I don’t care if you are a caring professional or a person with a brain injury. We must speak to each other and hear what we are saying and try our best to overcome the burden this tragic turn of events has created in our lives. We must trust what each of us has to say and not dictate our values and prejudices into each other’s lives. Trust flourishes and is nourished when we hear and understand what each of is saying. Respect and dignity is something everyone needs to survive and thrive. Call in tonight and talk about your journey and recovery. Our knowledge is based on experience. Let people hear what you know and how to live!

    Bringing Dignity and Compassion to Alzheimer's Caregiving

    in Caregiving

    “I Am Somebody” is a spiritually nourishing book by poet/author Frances H. Kakugawa - that is also likely to be healing for people who lack the words to describe their caregiving experiences, both past and present, and the range of emotions that accompany those experiences.


    Her message is a powerful one: Despite all the demands and burdens that caring for someone with dementia entail, the bottom line is never to forget that person’s humanity. The care recipient may no longer have the memories, abilities and personality that he or she once did, but there is a soul within that body that responds to and is deserving of love and compassion.

    THE REAL DELIA (Smith) - Brittany Maynard/Death With Dignity

    in Radio

    On November 1, 2014 29 y.o. brain cancer patient, Brittany Maynard, ended her life. She took advantage of the Death With Dignity Law in Oregon to end her life on her terms. Her action was reported in media including People.com and on NPR. There is lots of controversy ever since Dr. Jack Kevorkian assisted terminally ill patients many years ago. Today we will be discussing Ms. Maynard's case specifically and Oregon's law as well as the reaction to her death. 


     


    Part two of the show we will be doing the first in our new 3 part segment: Getting To Know You. . . .Today, the newest member of The Real Delia Show, Lady Tee, will join me in interviewing co-host extraordinaire Mr. DLW . . . . AKA Darkwing. . . . AKA Darryl L Williams. 


    Lady Cab Driver takes the turns and spills on the conversation road, to take lights of green and yellow on the TALK BOULEVARD, yet there is no caution here.  All systems go - and with her co-host, they are ready to explore the open roads of speaking candidly about everything.  347-205-9366, the number to reach out and share the traveling, for there is no telling where your destination will end up.  Are you ready for some game debates and more - right here on the JKN with the REAL DELIA SMITH.  Enough said!

    Dignity and Healing Part 2

    in Spirituality

    We must have our dignity in order to see our rightful positions. And, when we find our rightful positions we can see things happen that would not otherwise of happened. 


    Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. (2 Cor. 10:5-6)


    Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. "Make level paths for your feet," so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed. (Hebrews 12:12-13
