I am trying to come to grips with something.
Why is grief such a selfish emotion?
In other words, why do so many people respond to death in such self-serving ways?
It has seemed to me in recent days that some of the outpouring of feeling I have read online about Chas (a friend who passed on October 16th in Ohio) are little more than thinly-veiled expressions of people's own agendas and issues, disguised as expressions of grief.
Then I find myself wondering if I am guilty of the same thing.
Why do we do this?
I am thinking this will become a much longer rant. But for now, I am just pondering it.
