On Tuesday evening, I joined close to eighty persons who came to St. Paul's University to hear Sister Nuala Kenny, Sister of Charity, doctor and ethicist from Halifax -- and a long-time friend of mine -- speak on making ethically appropriate difficult choices in facing one's own death or helping loved ones or those for whom one has the responsibility of care make choices.
