as parents we are tasked with teaching our children that there are so many things in the world that are not fair. that there is not always equality. or justice. or reason. and all too often as adults. and as parents. we are reminded of this as well. as the world stops spinning for someone. we find ourselves stunned. and grasping for words. and understanding. where there is none. no explanation. nothing that will make it okay. ever.
yesterday an amazing little boy who fought courageously with his mothers beside him succumbed to the ravages of leukemia. i cannot even begin to imagine the pain his moms are experiencing. but i hope in their grief they know that their little BG changed so many lives and will never be forgotten.
unfair doesn’t even begin to describe it.
