Let's Talk Grief, Let's Talk Hope

 

Accalimed novelist, Jesmyn Ward, has a breathtaking personal essay up on Vanity Fair. 

In "On Witness and Respair: A Personal Tragedy Followed by Pandemic," Ward documents the unspeakable grief of losing her partner during the early stages of the pandemic and the startingly hope of the social justice movements that followed her loss.

If there is one personal essay that you need to read about our current events—this should be it.
