"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"
Sharing multiple perspectives and views makes for a perfectly healthy discussion.
But here’s the rub: right now, we don’t want a debate or discussion. Death isn’t logical and our response right now is not to try and hash it out with logic and reasons and meta essays. Right now, we want to mourn and be angry and find consolation and solace in people who have the same opinions. That’s why we haven’t really left the SF thread. We want our little bubble as our safe place right now. And people keep coming at us trying to say, “no you should see it this way” or “have you considered this” or “too much anger….” and right now, we’re simply not feeling it.
Maybe by next week I’ll be back to my super long response self. Right now, I’m thinking like someone who has lost something and someone dear to her.
It is rational? No of course not.
Is it human? Yes.
