Thursday, October 9
The film Consider the Conversation will be shown at the Bonners Ferry Senior Center on October 9, from 6:00 p.m. til 8:00 p.m. This film is presented by Bonner General Health - Community Hospice.

Inspired by personal experiences with the loss of family members due to chronic illness, this film was developed to discover what it means to die in 21st century America. The film includes "on the street" conversations and personal interviews. The producers of this film found that most people find it extremely difficult to communicate about and prepare for the end of life. Through their experiences, they share: this is not a
story about death; it’s a film about living life to its fullest up to the very end.

Consider the Conversation does not provide any particular answers; rather, it offers the questions that activate our own exploration so that we might discover answers for ourselves.
