A few months ago I wrote about Sohail's friend at work.
He had been retrenched.
Then was diagnosed with cancer.
Last night I lit a candle.
He passed away.
He has left Melissa and her two beautiful children.
I grieve today.
For the life that was lost.
For the suffering of his family.
We all suffer.
We all grieve.
That is what binds us all together.
It is what makes us human.
Please send your prayers to Melissa.
And her children.
And the rest of the family.
In times like these, we need to be surrounded by love and compassion.
If you struggle with the senselessness of something like this,
It might just bring you some peace.
