I’m with you.

For every person, grief is a deeply personal emotion. Many display it with copious tears and despair while others or more stoic.

Taking the edited photo and displaying it for the whole internet and world to see is somewhat disturbing for the very reason I mentioned above. If the family likes it, fine. But it’s not something to display to others, as it interferes with my own ideas of how I would grieve in such a situation. It’s the same as those who fight every September 11th over whether to read the names or not.

Death always comes out of season, and let each to their own was of sorrow.
