Diary of a Widower

Daily entries by a husband, who stayed behind with his two sons

Death is all around us

THURSDAY, October 7 – Death. It’s really something. I’m reading the newspaper and see an article about a 12-year old boy who was run over by a bus driver. Just then a tweet comes in about the suicide of a famous Dutch actor, followed by reports that a woman and a child have just been murdered in a town near The Hague. Tragedy comes in all sorts and sizes. Is it some kind of horrible contest? I think about the next of kin, those still alive, who will be confounded by these deaths. I wouldn’t know how to explain what will come their way. Not even now.
