This Death and Dying course Im taking this semester is going to be an emotionally trying class. Im writing this short paper about my experiences with death and grieving its just making me realize how much I miss my grandmother, grandfather and uncle. Each of their deaths have made me learn a lot. Despite the fact I wish they were here with me now, I am thankful for them no matter what and with every challenging moment in our lives that we have, there is a lesson in it all. Whenever I do get sad about them being gone, the fact that they have done their job here on Earth and get to spend their time with God is comforting. So all in all, it makes me optimistic about living my life the way God wants me to. 

I think I just wrote the closing paragraph for my paper. Oh…

=)

As of May 1st, 2011 I have exactly 14 days to raise $1,963. If I am unable to reach my monetary goal I am afraid I will not be able to embark on my Tour of America for Cancer Awareness. If I have the money then I would have no problems, but I have already invested A LOT of time and money into this ride and to have it ripped from me would be a catastrophic blow to the heart. So I am doing what I wish not to, I’m asking the world once again for help. I’m not asking anyone to go broke for my cause but I am asking you just use that $1 you use for a snack for something bigger than yourself, we all know our world needs people willing to give without receiving. If you are unable to spare ANY amount of money to this cause please just spread the word. You don’t really know me but I personally hate having to rely on others for my desire, so this is rather hard for me to type. But I know my feelings are nothing compared to those bearing the weight of illness. Here is the link to my paypal/donor page for my ride. ~*~HERE~*~ And this here is the check information: 
Checks must be made out to:4K for CancerP.O. Box 4730Baltimore, MD, 21211United StatesPlease make sure you put my name (Michael McNair) in the memo field.
I’m not asking you to donate because of me, but because of the people I will help along the way.

// It really bothers me when people in general speak ill of the dead.//

Just a personal thing that bothers me. 

Honestly, no matter who it is that died, whether they did unfavorable things in their life or were Noble Peace prize worthy, I just dont think speaking bad about them is respectful or necessary. I wouldnt want anyone saying anything disrespectful about myself or any of my loved ones regardless of their actions in their life. And im sure none of you would want anyone speaking ill about your legacy. 

Again this is my personal opinion. 

And then again, people should also consider the things they do in their lives. Just think about it:

If you died tomorrow, would you be pleased or at least content with the reputation and impression that you have left with your loved ones? 

Just gonna leave this for you fine folks to ponder on.
