A Letter to My Lost Student, originally posted on December 17, 2017, mourns the sudden and unexpected passing of a former student.
As I mentioned to my students the day I received the sad news, there are going to be some things that happen in life that defy all reason, events that simply do not compute. This is one of them.
Because life can be so unfair sometimes. And there’s nothing we can do to stop its cruelty unfortunately.
