Would an obituary be more accurate if the person wrote it for himself? What would you say about your life if you were asked to write your obituary?
The residents of a small English village have been asked to do just that. The editor of Lydiards Magazine, the monthly publication of the village of Lydiard Millicent in Wiltshire, England, included a request in the March issue for residents to write their obituaries "in good time."
So far no one has sent an obituary in, including the editor herself. Perhaps they're too humble to write about their accomplishments.
