“A microphone turned on. “It’s okay, professor,” one of the students said. “I could use a crying break too.”“

(CW: Suicide and pandemic grief. I cried.)

In the darkness, the only thing we have is each other. Please hold on. We need everyone to get through this.

And that’s all I’ll say right now.

@lilithsaintcrow I sort-of wished I hadn't read that, but even though you CW'd, I did.
I think it was worth it though

@lilithsaintcrow my god

it’s just … still so unreal, to me, after a year and a half. maybe this is the summer and fall that we learn how to hold onto each other again?

@mxsparks I think it’s more a process than a destination? Holding on under these conditions is somewhat of a moving target.

@lilithsaintcrow holy hell.
Worth reading through the dark.

Thank you.

And thank you for being one of the people who take care of each other.
