That is when you know, for certain, whether all that humanism and kindness is just a facade necessitated by society or if that philanthropism is literal.
And those who really manage to hang on to that professed love of all humanity, within that precious last inch of life, only they understand that sometimes all one has left is their dignity. And when that is lost, life is just so many breaths and heartbeats.
Should one be allowed full control of their life, including even the way it ends? Is it valid to even consider that one can be 'offered' such a choice?
All I know is that, a lot of the time, saving someone is not as simple a matter as preserving their life.
