That's a tough call. I am not usre anyone is actually ready or prepared to die. I think a lot of the elderly people do go neglected and yes, it could be considered a curse. Others, I believe enjoy life and cherish it thru the good times and the bad.

I fully agree with you . We come crying into this world without our consent, and again we have to die without our consent.
