I can’t believe it’s been a year already, but the calendar on my desk and the mere fact that’s it is my birthday assure me that it is. I can’t believe a year has passed since I’ve seen her last. Her departure a year ago left us all shocked, vowing to be better. Looking back, I don’t think I am better, all the things I said I would do or become.. I have fell short. I feel I owe it to her to be a better me. I know it sounds self-centered and complicated, but that’s the effect a death of a peer has on you.
I veered off point. I just wanted to ask you all to kindly remember her in your prayers this day. I mean, she must have died on my b-day for a reason, even if that reason is just for me to forever remember her, say a prayer, and ask all those who know me to say one too.
