“Why did they have to die?”
A question so often asked.

Normally, the answer is:
“Because of a drunk driver.”
“Because of old age.”
“Because….” a million understandable reasons.

Now, our answers sound like:
“Because someone probably didn’t wear a mask.”
“Because someone didn’t want to do social distancing.”
“Because their work didn’t follow CDC guidance.”

Those answers are ridiculous.

Those answers are sad.

Those answers are, for someone, somewhere now, all true.
