Today, your dad couldn't bear to look at your toys and bed anymore, but now that they're gone I can't bear to see the emptiness of our home. RIP. MMT

Today, I have a clock on my desk that my dad loved and passed down to me, and it stopped this afternoon when he died at nearly the exact time of his death. MMT

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

Today, it's been almost a decade since she passed away and her family moved, but it's still habit to look at her house as I drive past... In fact, it's impossible for me not to. MMT

Today, with my grandfather dying in the next room, my grandmother told me, "Sometimes I just break down and cry for hours non-stop, but I'll never let him see it. I'd rather spend my last moments with him laughing and telling him I love him than making him see how much I'll hurt when he's gone." MMT

Today, every time I visit his grave I cry for at least an hour. I still regret throwing the keys on the sidewalk and screaming at him to leave my house that night he came home drunk. MMT

Today, I returned home after a month of international travel to find out that my close friend attempted suicide last week when I was gone. I had been helping her through her depression for the past year. And she was making so much progress. Now I am sitting here in the ICU wondering if I could have made a difference if I was around.

Today, the bully who has picked on me at school every day for the past three years – a kid who has made me cry more times than I can count – killed himself. His final tweet from last night reads, “I’m the weakest one of them all. Always have been. Sorry for everything.” MMT

Today, I still love you even though you lied to the police and had me arrested at work. I have so many reasons to be mad at you, but I constantly think about you and the two wonderful children's lives you allowed me to be a part of. I've realized I've never missed or loved someone this much and the fact that you can't even answer the phone when I call hurts more than anything I've ever experienced. MMT

Today, my wretched, drug-addicted brother admitted he saw our grandmother's death, the grandmother we lived with until the eighth grade, as merely an opportunity to miss a few hours of school. MMT

Today, I collapsed onto my knees when the vet told me she had cancer, but she trotted over and snuggled her head into my lap to comfort me, sensing only my sadness. MMT

Today, my son said he had moved on from his mom’s passing, who died from a stroke five years ago, but as he stared at the spot on the kitchen floor where she died, I knew he hadn't. MMT

Today, I watched the old video footage my dad filmed at the beach before he started the chemo 5 years ago. And about 20 minutes into it I suddenly realized that he was filming the beach simply because it was the last time he would ever see it again. MMT
