For weeks this image has haunted me. I first saw it on the day of their funeral. It is, in fact, a photograph of their funeral, and I can’t get it out of my mind.
On March 4th an Orthodox Jewish couple from Brooklyn was killed in a car accident on their way to the hospital. They were both 21, and they were 7 months pregnant with their first child. Doctors delivered the baby by Caesarean section, and he died the following day.
I weep for them. I will remember them forever. And I’m further saddened that absolute hearbreak can create such a beautiful image.
