LETTER: Killing ourselves is still murder

No rush on assisted dying is a wise decision. There is more to it than meets the eye.

No rush on assisted dying is a wise decision. There is more to it than meets the eye.

First of all, killing ourselves is still murder. Therefore a capital sin against the 10 commandments.

Point number two, we are created out of dust, meaning for a temporary purpose. To test or to see how we make out. Like a play going into dress rehearsal. If we are brave learning from our mistakes, and improving as we go.

We may get a second chance taking advantage of the setbacks, use it to build our character.

Get to know our Creator, as we build our character we do our part to become more like Him.

He created us to be like Him. To be able to become part of His family and God’s kingdom.

I have constant pain due to Parkinson’s, neuropathy and arthritis diseases. I have therefore been able to build character.
