Month 5, Day 10: Reflection

Hello. A very sobering day. Yesterday’s media generated a wave of activity that was overpowering , amazing and rewarding. Old friends reconnected, my original chemo nurse who used to come to work super early so I could get out of hospital without a moment to spare got in touch, people with sad and desperate stories around cancer and no end of life choice made contact and the waters of the river of life flowed mightily. 3000 people visited the blog about 1500 signed the petition and it has continued on today.

I do hope all this does get to politicians and change can grind forward but it seems we are so poor at making the real issues matter, better debating leadership woes or union expense scandals or even the country hinging on an iron ore price under $100 a tonne

had a great time in Port Douglas and looking forward to getting home tomorrow. I think proximity is an important part of this journey, to things familiar and close, especially my cocker spaniel who people are now calling lassie.

Must be in a melancholy mood for a change, it won’t last. Lots comming up, thanks for the reads and posts

  1. Hi Peter,
    I really respect what you’re doing and would love to see Australia’s laws changed, have you considered doing an AMA on Reddit to drum up support for your Cause? People have heaps of questions in regards to this, and raising awareness is a big part of it.

  2. Hi Peter,about time we all started talking and accepting that death is part of life.We should all have the right to choose how and when our life ends if facing a terminal illness.We have lost three family members in the last three years,all early 50s due to numerous illnesses.One died with dignity and other two not so fortunate and i sure know which one was easier for all involved.You were always an inspirational leader,keep up the good fight and lets hope Australia starts listening.All the best to you and yours,got to go and spread the message.Vicki
