Green Beyond Death

indexThis is a shout-out to the work of a former nursing student of mine, Hunter Marshall. He is now a hospice nurse, as well as an environmental and death with dignity advocate, community activist–and a  talented writer! Check out his recent article “Dying to give back to the earth” in Waging Nonviolence (3-3-14).

Hunter told me that he is actively pursuing writing as a mechanism for continuing his patient/policy advocacy: “I particularly enjoy using narratives about individuals that intersect with larger policy issues.” Another rebellious nurse (and writer) in the younger generation warms the cockles of my older nurse/writer heart!

  1. Interesting article. I didn’t know cremation causes that many pollutants in the air. I guess funeral homes are ok with it as long as they are monopolizing the business.
