Brief Conversations: Why don’t we talk about death?

It happens to us all and there’s no escaping it. As a nation though we’re unlike many cultures where death is embraced and celebrated. There’s also been attempts by a range of organisations to bring death out in the open and to talk about it. The Co-op famously launched its top ten songs played at funerals and explained why people have chosen them.

By bringing humour to the subject, they thought it could break the taboo and get us to think about our final resting place. So why don’t we talk about the one thing we all have in common?
