I always knew she believed those things that she never said. There were signs. There was a dinner party for twelve at my apartment with H2 (husband #2) in the mid eighties and AIDS was just becoming a topic of dinner party talk. The left wing international set around our table were all talking about the horror of it, and about the long-term possibility of the annihilation of those we love. You have to have been a thirty-something during that time to understand the enormity of it, and the terror and sadness it left in its wake.
Similar experience Christine. Hard to grasp at first, but we must accept what is and move forward. In the end, when we all meet up again, in God’s beautiful heaven, we will all see the same light and love.
I, too, was born in 1953 and had a college roommate and friend- she was in my wedding. Now, all these years later - nope, not friends anymore. Thinks Trump was sent to save the world…I’m not kidding, she really does!
