Loved One Gone Due To Lack of Health Care

“The man I loved when I was young is gone

He died alone in a basement apartment of a heart attack at 58

An unexpected member of the working poor

Former golden boy, graduate student in science far from his native shore

Our children shine in academic and business successes

But the echo of the silence about his lack of access to the human right of health care is a gash on their hearts that I want to repair”
