what you deserve


The gross and horrible injustice of this is too much to bear.

Technically she is healthier than I am. Her blood pressure is that of a 30 year old. Her oxygen level is 98%. Her pulse is strong.

The truth here is that my gramma, my world, is dying of thirst, dying of starvation, and there is nothing in the world I can do to save her, or to help her move forward. I have done everything I know, everything the nurses know, everything the world knows.

This woman, bright, loving, funny, proud, beautiful woman deserves peace. She does not deserve this. If this is what the good guys get, I can't imagine the alternative.
