'Death cafes' held for people wanting to discuss 'taboo' topic

 |  NCR Today

Some people refuse to talk about death, saying it is morbid and senseless to do so while one is still living. For others, however, 'death cafes' offer an opportunity to talk about death in an open and candid way as well as for people to listen. It is a trend that started in England and is now coming to the United States.
