An Unkind Reflection and a Call for Kindness

by Thomas L Knapp

“Last night, my brother Mike collapsed and, as a result of a massive brain bleed, died hours later. … No sooner had I mentioned Mike’s death on Facebook than the condolences began coming in from friends and acquaintances. And, scattered among them: ‘Was it the jab? Could it have been the jab? I bet it was the jab. He shouldn’t have got the jab!’ My carefully considered response: ‘What the [expletive] is wrong with you people? Are you throwing this garbage at his widow, too?’ I’m thick-skinned by nature. My feelings aren’t hurt because, as anyone who knows me will tell you, I don’t have feelings. … but others do.” (01/20/23)
