Prologue: this memoir and these comments are based on my observation and thoughts; no more, no less.
At the bottom of today’s (May 21) list of featured memoirs is this one:
“Cancer took so much I had.” It’s a simple, poignant memoir that nearly everyone can relate to. Seeing it without a single comment earlier today made me sad; I imagined how I would feel if I posted this memoir and it was ignored (being on the first page, it’s safe to assume that most people saw it). I wanted him/her to know that someone read the memoir, so I made a comment to let the person know that I was listening.
It’s now the end of the day and there have been no more comments. Many people here on six post about a medical issue or health scare, or how cancer has touched their lives or about grieving painful losses, and there is a great outpouring of support. Today's was this person's first memoir on six and I wonder if he/she knows that there is a caring community at six.
