I shared a story about a young one-time neighbor passing away recently.
We learnt of the story of the friend who was with him a few days later. She was raised by a single mother. And, it turns out that they had just lost her brother to an accident 2 years earlier.
She was also 29.
It is hard to imagine what that mother must be going through.
I was reminded of an incredibly touching song from Hamilton – the musical. It’s called “It’s quiet uptown.”
There are moments that the words don’t reach
There is suffering too terrible to name
You hold your child as tight as you can
And push away the unimaginable
There are moments that words don’t reach indeed.
