While watching CNN on Monday night I saw an interview with the mother of Heather Heyer, the young woman killed by a rampaging white supremacist in Charlottesville. Ms. Heyer’s mother described getting word that the hospital was looking for her daughter’s next of kin, being driven to the hospital while frantically calling to get word of her daughter’s condition, being told the hospital had “no patient by that name” — because her daughter was never admitted, her daughter was dead.

Life is so often very, very hard. The interview with this mother, still dazed and shaken by her daughter’s sudden death, was heartbreaking.
