The end of the Road…. :-(

From Birth until now, she’s been the love of my life. This year she not only graduates from HS and prepares to move on with her life, but  as we speak we are at Cheerleading Worlds for her final time competing as an AS Cheerleader.  The amazing opportunities she’s  had have been truly amazing.  She was in the movie The Champions League, she has cheered for Sparks All Stars and then East Celebrity Elite, C5 for the last couple seasons.  I can not believe I will be watching her final competition this weekend.  It just baffles me.  Good Luck Kelly Ann and  C5, pray to Markell, and know that you all have a chance to do this weekend what he never got the chance to do:  Compete at Worlds with ECE C5!  Remember that.

Like most states, Maryland criminalizes assisted suicide. But Delegate Heather Mizeur, a Democrat running for governor, told WJZ, if elected, she would introduce “Death with Dignity” legislation, allowing people to get medicine from their doctor that would end their lives.

“If terminally ill, mentally competent adults choose to end their life, they should be able to seek a life-ending dose of medicine from their physician,” Mizeur said in a policy proposal released late Tuesday.

I starting watching a documentary on death with dignity and assisted suicide in oregon. Its called how to die in oregon.

I have seen suffering and I hate it. It is cruel.
