An inspirational short film about facing death...

Gordon is dying of cancer. In this "Three MinuteWonder" programme shown on British TV this week, he talks about his death with grace, humour and love. This is a wonderful film which should be seen and shared by as many people as possible...please follow the link below to watch it online, then simply click the screen at the side of the page.

Gordon made this film in the hope that it might be of some help to anyone facing their own mortality but it is, primarily, a life-affirming piece for us all. Please watch and pass it around...

The film is wonderful. Thank you for directing us to it. Gordon reminds me of a wonderful friend of mine who died from breast cancer a few years ago. Even when she was diagnosed as "terminal", she would get angry with anyone who said that anyone was "dying of cancer". She said, "You're not dead until your heart stops beating" - she preferred to tell people she was "LIVING w/ cancer". (and she DID...biked over 20 miles to her chemo sessions.) I think Gordon, too, will LIVE until his final moments...whenever and however those may come. Blessings to you and your family.

\\nKnowledge. What is it? Where is it? We all think we know. In this information age, the amount of data often makes us think we know more than others know. In fact, what all the data (whether factual or fantasy) should show us is that we will never kn...
