Esteemed writer, Oliver Sacks, has learned he has terminal cancer and he wrote this beautiful piece for the New York Times about death and what it means when a human life is extinguished. When people die, they cannot be replaced. They leave holes that cannot be filled, for it is the fate — the genetic and neural fate — of every human being to be a unique individual, to find his own path, to live his own life, to die his own death.
DW Reader, JustMax, sent in this article: “The Daily Show’s Jessica Williams to Journalist Who Told Her to ‘Lean In’: I’m Not a Victim,” and said: “Jessica’s response to the article resonated with me. A few times someone has insinuated I should “lean in,” (as it’s used in this article) or believed to know better how I should live my life. I loved this line in particular: ‘I am a black woman and I am a feminist and I am so many things. I am truly honored that people love my work. But I am not yours.’
That’s right! I am not yours, you jerks who think you know better how I should live MY life. ;-)”
