Amy, sorry for your sadness. How many inspiring stories do you read? For every bad apple, there must be 10 good ones for this all to work. These are the unsung. Your concern is an example of a positive story. My reading your story, requested by choice, not pushed by algorithm, because I value your writing is another positive. -I wonder if some of your current perspective comes from your tendency to immerse yourself in the biggest, most emotionally painful challenges.

For all the awfulness, we still live in a world where you are able to post this, and get an honest, positive response.

You are right, we need to keep this in mind, and fight to maintain that ability.

BTW, you are enough. You bring light to the world.
