Throughout the semester, I’ve dedicated a lot of time and effort towards uncovering the human tendency of grieving the loss of strangers. Some of you may relate to this phenomenon, and some of you will not. Regardless, I highly encourage you to read the original content that provoked my gateway content. Last year, I read a heartbreaking piece entitled You May Want to Marry My Husband, written by the late author, Amy Krouse Rosenthal. I need to advise you that this piece is devastating. But it is also incredibly beautifully written and truly changed my life. If you want to read it, you can find it here: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/03/style/modern-love-you-may-want-to-marry-my-husband.html?_r=0.
And if you have, or haven’t, experienced the phenomenon of grieving the loss of a stranger, please consider reading my Gateway piece (https://hberson.wixsite.com/writing). You may find it very relatable. At least, that was my goal.
