Jimmy Carter's real gift

This week, the New York Times published an opinion essay by Dr. Daniela Lamas describing former President Jimmy Carter's decision to enter hospice early as a fitting final gift from a former president to Americans who've long hesitated to face their morality. I agree with Dr. Lamas' assessment and noted in a Letter to the Editor that Mr. Carter's real gift may be helping us all to overcome our reservations and misguided stereotypes about hospice care. You can read Dr. Lamas' essay and my response by clicking on the links.
