Default Death - 07-28-2008, 05:31 PM

Seeing as this has not already been posted today I wish to bring up this some what harder topic.Death is the termination of the biological functions that define living organisms.what defines something that is living you ask?
Well we all think that if you breath,have a pulse,have some form of movement we are considered living which is false. For a human's point of view on living that fits us to a minor extent but there is so much more then just those simple factors.
Some other factors are:

1)living organisms can reproduce

2)living organisms are composed of chemicals(gernally carbon based ie organic chemicals like in our genetic information such as amino acid

3)living organisms aquire materials and energy.

4) Living Organisms Sense & Respond to Environmental Stimuli.

5) Living Organisms Have the Capacity to Mutate and genetic mutations are the fundamental basis of evolutionary change as driven by natural selection

6) Life exhibits organization at many levels
ex-subatomic part. -> atom-> molecule->cell parts->tissues->organs-->organ systems---->individuals---> populations--->communities--->ecosystems

We all know what death is and all feel about it in the same way .I am posting this how shall I say it mournful topic due to the fact my mother is not well. She has Pulmonary Fibrosis which is a chronic disease causing inflammation and scarring of the alveoli (air sacs) and interstitial tissues of the lungs. Pulmonary fibrosis is the abnormal formation of fibre-like scar tissue in the lungs. The scar formation is preceded by, and associated with, inflammation.

This chronic disease will soon be the death of my mother as she is terribly ill. I can't wiat to go sww her in Canada this week for I need to be by her side. I know all of you have came across people with illnesses be it family or friends or even a celebrity. Never the less its a fact of life we all have to push our way through.

I lost a lot of close lives. When I was age of nine I experienced my first death when my grandma died in the hospital for she had stomach cancer and seeing that with my own two eyes shattered a lot for me. then I went through my 2nd death of a best friend who was kill while he was riding on his bike by a car. my 3rd was my auntie on my 16th birthday, she died of a heart attack. My cat died 2 days after that. Also my grandma on my moms side past away from a heart attack as well. and now my dearest mother</3
I would love to have people to spill out their heart ache on the very special people the lost and or loseing at this present point and time for I understand what you are going through as well.
