Do we ever really stop and think about the end of our life?

When my doctor validated my ailment 5 years ago, nothing seemed important. It was like all the world turned gray. It didn't help that she gave me a book about the purpose of life and stated that only God's will shall prevail. Every day I cried. But my doc was right, prayer will help pull us through.

Also, if my ailment retrogressed, I would not want to burden my family unnecessarily. Today, I am not sure if I am better, but thank God I am still alive. Also, as of this day, my partner knows what to do in case I die ahead of him. Morbid? Not really, just being practical.

And joining this dNeero conversation made me understand a little more about serious illness, end of life care and death.

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
