May Fireside Question 8 - Is murder a natural death?
This is one of those thoughts that can have our brain saying yes and no, with a but on each. The cause of death for us all is the same; how we get there varies. When our heart stops beating and has no restart, that is what kills us.
Whether you are bitten by a venomous snake, attacked by a pack of wolves, fell and broke your hip, were in surgery, hit by a car, had cancer, had a heart attack, or were murdered, those are all a means to the end. Our death certificates label the events that led to our hearts ceasing. But, it is when our heart ceases that brings us to the point of no return.
