Need to Know Challenge


The program Need to Know asked several learned individuals what they would do to fix America.  The contributors to the show mentioned several things that I think would make a difference. Sidartha Mukherjee advised that we offer terminally ill elderly individuals palliative care instead of very costly and invasive intervention during the last days of life. It has been proven that those getting comfort care not only have a better end of life they also live longer.

Another suggestion made by Isabel Coleman was that all girls be educated.  They would make the world a better place for their children, have fewer children and take better care of and educate those that they have.

Now what do I think we should do? I suggest that we each take charge of our lives.  Be well-informed, question, be skeptical and finally be proactive on behalf of ourselves, our families, the environment, the world and ultimately the universe.
