I sat in on an Econ class last semester and sat next to someone who passed away in December
Today I woke up to my friend texting me that school was cancelled because it was a snow day
I was ecstastic because I hadn’t studied for my micro theory test and woke up early to do so. Instead I got that text from my friend
And then I checked my email and saw that a senior from the CLAS had passed away. A senior. She was just a few months from graduation.
I don’t know these people.
I don’t know most people.
I don’t know what it feels like to be close to someone.
I don’t know what it feels like to have someone you love leave.
There are over 10,000 people that walk on this Villanova campus.
There are over 7 billion on this planet.
We are all connected by the same fate. Just the thought that we will all die one day should be enough to let us love one another.
