Top 5 Regrets of the Dying - Bronnie Ware. For many years I worked in palliative care.

Top 5 Regrets of the Dying - Bronnie Ware

My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last 3 to 12 weeks of their lives. People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality. I learnt never to underestimate someone's capacity for growth. When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. 1. This was the most common regret of all. It is very important to try and honour at least some of your dreams along the way. 2. This came from every male patient that I nursed. By simplifying your lifestyle and making conscious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. 3.

Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. We cannot control the reactions of others. 4. It is common for anyone in a busy lifestyle to let friendships slip. 5.

So what if America is the most religious nation? if you compare creed and deed, the claim is hollow

More that 90 percent of our population say they believe in God, and that they pray regularly. The figure may even be higher when adding the majority of Americans who claim to be atheists but pray, one-third of them often, according to a Baylor University survey. A Rice University study of 275 scientists at 21 “elite” research universities in the United States found that while 61 percent declared themselves atheists or agnostics, 17 percent have attended church services.

Whether genuine devotees, just hedging their bets or doing it for the children (as some say), there’s little doubt that America is a religious nation. But does professing religious beliefs translate into acting in accord with religious principles? How do creed and deed match up? More people are slipping into poverty in the United States. The number of working poor continues to increase. Terry Sanderson: If Rowan Williams hasn't come out in favour of disestablishment, it's because he knows it would kill his church.
