Planet Philippines: Cremation, Still A Burning Issue
It seems that the human decision-making dilemmas do not end with death. Even after one passes, choices still need to be made in determining their final resting place. There are people, however, who have thought far ahead into the conditions after their demise and have made arrangements pertaining to their funeral services. But for the departed who, either by choice or chance, have not taken the liberty of making funeral arrangements, the question of whether they will be buried traditionally or be cremated is one that their family must answer.
The traditional burial practices have been honored and observed by generations after generations. There was simply no choice but to pick out a casket, buy a lawn lot wherein to bury the dead, and pay the necessary maintenance fees or whatever related expenses there may be in memorial parks. But when modern cremation services were introduced into the country, there came another practical option.
I like apples and universal conspiracies. I'm in love with philadelphia rolls and poetry. I'm starting an affair with photography, but nothing ever happens without my coffee. I write, I shoot. I rhyme, and I'm cute. (At least, that's what my parents think).
