Paul Simmons
Various quotes from various thinkers like E.O. Wilson, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Carl Sagan appear as the first presenter, Paul Simmons, reflects on our shared humanity including our molecular makeup, the intertwined relationship of life and death, and the gratitude for life we can feel in the face of unavoidable death. Dr. Mitchell’s story was one of several told by the Grand Junction Players (Amy Davis, Lucy Graham, Stephen Mitchell, Paul Simmons, and CFHA board member and the production’s organizer, Randall Reitz) during the plenary entitled “End of Life in Our Time.â€� Each player’s storyâ€"about our transience as beings, a fetal demise, cultural and spiritual reasons for a patient’s refusal of care, and the creation of a new family following the deaths of two young parentsâ€"evoked grief and made the point that we need to restore humanity to our healthcare system’s overly technological approaches to life and death. Paul Simmons and Andrew Pomerantz goaded readers into attending their informative and highly entertaining CFHA presentation in Washington, DC while Don Bloch, the visionary behind CFHA, was honored in a reprint of an interview.
