The Last One: For Life Yet Still Single

I've signed off forever.

A painful death.

BY    Hope Kumor It's a painful day as the clouds roll in.   It's not a sunny, happy day. It was 10 years ago today on my younger brother's 7th birthday. The two clash. Today represents two things, a life and a death. The death of a 6-year boy who never got a chance to live, as well as my younger brother's birthday. We are still in mourning. When this day comes, I always brace myself on the events that will occur on this day. It is heart-wrenching to think that a little boy lost his life.
