Reading through those comments was so heartbreaking. The raw emotion and pain in those words are genuine. It is a stark reminder of how all of us are suffering together. Regardless of who we are, where we’re from, how young or old, we all suffer. And if you see someone suffering, please be there for them – it’s the least we can do for each other. Be kind, be honest, and be supportive. If these past years have taught us anything – it’s to love one another regardless. Cherish whoever you have around you, and make sure they know they’re cherished, too.
