08:05 am - Death isn't romantic
This was posted to an acquaintance's Facebook page on the 2nd anniversary of my husband's death. I really have no idea how to respond to this. If I could have laid down and died, too, I probably would have. I don't really find anything romantic about it, just a lot of pain.

"Just watched Walk the Line while cleaning. Does anybody else think it's romantic that Johnny Cash died 4 months after June? Really, to be that in love with someone that you really cannot go on with out them? I think it's lovely."
Current Mood: numbnumb

People are idiots. I read somewhere that grief is a language and until you've lost someone you love, you don't speak it. It's like the person posted something in a language they didn't understand. Of course it made no sense.

As to what to say? I go back and forth between wanting to school people and letting them think their own stupid thoughts. What do YOU need in this situation?
