Link and Think

The people in my life who have been lost have always been two steps away. A friend of a friend. Someone I didn’t know well. A funeral full of strangers.

As each one falls, my stomach churns, selfishly. Next time, not so lucky. Next time, you’ll lose someone you love.

So yes, I’m participating in Link and Think for purely selfish reasons. I could give you links to statistics in Africa (which, believe me, are mind boggling and fill me with rage), or I could point to the rising infection numbers here in the US. I’m sure many of the sites doing LandT this year will have those numbers.

But I’m just going to talk about me. Friends have lost friends. Family members have lost people they loved. Please make it stop.
