It is your funeral.
The church bell tolls.
People who knew you, your loved ones, family members, friends, colleagues, a neighbour, an acquaintance, a stranger you briefly met, a rival or someone you didn’t get along with, assemble, wearing a somber mood and funeral clothing. They give speeches and talk about things you shared together, things they liked and will miss about you, your successes, your failures, the laughs you shared, funny moments, problems, blunders, disagreements, etc.
You are not dead,
You are sitting right there among them, front-row seat, or alone in a separate room, listening to emotional, tearful, heartfelt and honest words about the life you’ve lived, in a funeral setting, being spoken about in past tense.
A Social Experiment. Television Factual Entertainment.
If you are given the opportunity to listen to what people will say about you at your own funeral,
Will it make you learn more about yourself, how you are viewed and how you will be remembered?
Will you be pleased by what you hear?
Will you be offended?
Will it make you decide to change the way you live the rest of your life?
Will it make you decide to make peace with your enemies, change your habits, or resolve personal issues?
Wouldn't it be a good idea if things we say at a funeral when someone has died are said to the person while he or she is still alive?
Listening to others speak about you in an honest and heartfelt fashion can inspire you to change as a person and improve some things in your life.
Eulogy gives people in the program the opportunity to reflect and perhaps resolve personal issues, family problems, etc, after seeing themselves in a dramatic context. Someone battling with serious issues that also impact those in their surrounding, family members, friends, colleagues, etc, could benefit from participating in the program. For instance personal issues such as drug addiction, alcoholism, and other self destructive habits are dealt with in the program.
The main characters in the program face their own reality through the words of those closest to them, confronted by their "after death moment", witnessing what it could be like unless they make some needed changes.
The program speaks with psychologists and therapists who also provide help and assistance to those who need it.
