Today, at a SXSW concert in Austin, I saw an elderly couple who had to be in their early 80’s dancing harder and singing louder than everyone else around me.

You won’t regret it!" MMT

Today, as a city council member I gave out medals to marathon winners. The young woman in first place used to be a student of mine when I was a teacher over a decade ago.

Today, with those brown eyes closing, all the stars disappeared from my sky. I stay here crying and looking at the only picture I've got. My heart is skinned and my mind is numb. I just hoped I'll be able to tell her that I love her. That I am sorry. I just hoped she would come at me one day. I was just a bully to her, and she was just the world to me. Now I know that she is in a here in a hospital room dying. And I am dying inside too. MMT
