Abstract:     
When it comes to length of life, the most important concern is not quantity but quality. In this essay, we offer our opinions on the causes, the issues, and the failure to implement an effective decisionmaking process outside of the courts, and conclude with a call for societal institutions to take a leadership role in resolution.
