Death. We’re all going to die, but how often do we think about it? How would being surrounded by death, as people in the past have been, change how we live? Is our society’s treatment of death good or bad for people, and for ourselves? Is it good that we’re extending human life, or is a longer life not necessarily better?
These are just some of the questions we will be considering in the next Cleveland Salon on April 16 at Mahall’s 20 Lanes. Joining us will be Thought Leaders who deal regularly with death: Mike Belsito and Kevin Barnett. Mike is one of the founders of eFuneral.com, an online funeral planning service that is working to change the way funeral planning is done. Kevin is an embalmer and funeral director at Berkowitz-Kumin-Bookatz in Cleveland Heights (and was recently featured in Cleveland Magazine). Mostly, however, this is a chance to discuss something incredibly important to all of us, yet isn’t discussed much until it actually happens.
Also, we’re starting at 7 p.m. again in response to feedback. See you in a couple of weeks!
