Last year, triggered by a facebook memory, I started to write out each day of the 3 weeks that my brother Dana was in a coma. I started on August 13 – the day that he was shot.
As each day unfolded, I sat pre-dawn of each morning and pulled up the memories from that day. They are from my phone, from emails, from blog posts. From my photos.
I will share my account here with you on this blog. I won’t email everyone on the mailing list since this isn’t what most people signed up to receive, but if you want me to email you these daily reflections, please click here.
I’ll see you here tomorrow.
