Pic of the day – Grieving
Should we be sad, or should we be happy? Should we be angry, or should
we be relieved? Should we be respectful, or is that too generous?
Lots and lots of confusion today. We lost two of our staff positions,
one with someone still in it, which is never easy on anyone. The topic
of conversation in the office seemed to be people’s torn feelings
about Osama bin Laden’s death, and the reverberations to 9/11
tragedies. Then, walking around campus to meetings, I saw these red
carnations lain carefully at the feet of the saddest statue on campus.
I don’t know what it was about or why, but there was sadness / hurt /
anger / confusion and related feelings everywhere I turned today.
