We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

I started doing hospice volunteering over thirty years ago.

I wrote an essay to use for training of new volunteers (attached)

Like me, I knew they had to be prepared to deal with folks with widely varying belief systems. If they had only one thing in common, they would all die.

When we were born, it was as if we entered this life through the open outer door of a flying airplane. We have no parachute. This metaphor can be expanded in numerous ways but for now, we will focus only on this life and the three choices we have for however long it may last.

  1. We could disregard the inevitable and close our eyes. Avoidance may seem to provide peace but will thwart our view of the beautiful scenery on our journey to the splat.
  2. We could flail and cry with fear. Again, missing the scenery.
  3. Our third choice is to relax and enjoy each day, each minute of our life.

It is not the intent of this article to even begin to scratch the surface of the infinitely complex discussion of where we came from and where or if we will go somewhere after this earthly experience.

After reading my essay I would appreciate frank feedback as to how this could be improved. I want to make sure these volunteers we train are able to work with everyone who is falling regardless of their beliefs about how the fall started or what may happen after it ends.
