How We Die

Each of us have had a thought about how or when we will die. If you’re like me, you picture a soft-lit room with your (grown-up) kids, their kids, and their kids’ kids gathering at your bedside as your 95+ year-old body slowly drifts off into the afterlife. Obviously, we hope to leave this world in the most peaceful way possible.

I’m sure Vera had the same desire. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out that way for her.


A makeshift tomb at a New Orleans street corner conceals the body of a woman named ‘Vera’ who had been lying on the sidewalk for days in the wake of Hurricane Katrina on Sunday, Sept. 4, 2005.

God bless you Vera.
