As if I don't realize life has stopped.
Yet I rise, make coffee and go about my day as if nothing has happened.
Life has been arrested. But no bond has been set because, no amount of money can buy it back.
Yet life goes on.
As a society, we've grown to expect things instantly. Coffee, cash, food...but not death. Yet it happens more instantaneously than anything else on earth. Something we'll never get used to.
She wasn't my daughter, yet I find that can't grieve enough for someone I didn't lose.
In honor of Jessie, a 15 year old student at my daughter's school who died unexpectedly last night.
