    Brittany Maynard, who became the public face of the controversial right-to-die movement over the last few weeks, ended her own life Saturday at her home in Portland, Oregon. She was 29.

    "Goodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love. Today is the day I have chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness, this terrible brain cancer that has taken so much from me … but would have taken so much more," she wrote on Facebook. "The world is a beautiful place, travel has been my greatest teacher, my close friends and folks are the greatest givers. I even have a ring of support around my bed as I type … Goodbye world. Spread good energy. Pay it forward!"

    And she had to move and uproot herself and her family in her final weeks to be able to end her life on her own terms. RIP

    As a last post I'll just say...sometimes you should always take time to stop and appreciate things when they are going good. Sister...daughter, etc. Ya never now. Sad story.

    Is it too soon to suggest that she could've killed herself by choking on my cock?
