Lest we forget

“Where did you go to college?” I asked my new patient as I glanced through the records she’d brought.

“Kent State.”

Looking up, my heart rate accelerated as I put down my pen.  She was just my age.  “Were you there when...?”

“My roommate died in my arms that day.”

New tears for innocence and a life long lost.

That's a day I'll never forget either.
