Inspiring Thougfits by Randy Minter A MATTER OF SAFETY In societies less advanced than ours, it's not uncommon to read stories in worldwide media involvinsg individuals being buried alive after the local authorities have incorrectly deemed them to be dead. The possibility of a premature burial occurring today in this country is nearly impossible, because a medical determination of death and a death certificate are requirements for burial. However, centuries ago, when comatose and unconscious individuals were not so easily distinguishable from the dead, it was possible for U.S. citizens to be buried alive. Consequently, so- called "safety coffins" were developed, which had devices (a string attached from the hand of the buried person to an aboveground bell) that would enable prematurely buried individuals to convey their status to passersby A funeral is a meaningful event that can help ease the pain of separation that naturally accompanies death.
