Living Wills-- Very Powerful Information

I had a friend (don't we all) who needed a will, a living will, and a medical power of attorney as preparation for a difficult divorce in an abusive marriage. No gory details, but let's just say that she needed to protect her assets and herself just in case tempers got out of control. While not the same circumstances as the current news story about Terry Schiavo-- a battle between a husband and parents over the life of a fairly young woman-- this friend's story highlights how important certain documents--information--can be. Both stories also point to that green information--money and its power to shape reality. We'll have to address money and end of life issues another time starting with the basic will. Reminds me that I need to update all these documents.
