Lord, don’t give me strength | The Community
I have been ill. I am better and it is nothing serious. But the battery of seemingly futuristic tests for which I got lined up, along with symptoms that were temporarily debilitating, triggered an interior spiral of obsessive worrying that I suspect is pretty common for people facing health difficulties.

Princess Diana: icon? | The Community
Princess Diana died on the evening before I moved away to begin university studies. I once would have said that I loved Diana. One of my earliest memories is of watching her wedding with my mother and grandmother at 4 in the morning when I was three years old. Throughout my childhood, I pored over the glossy magazine pictures of her. I dreamt about meeting her. I hungered for details about her life and spoke adoring words about her. I kept a sleepless, tear-filled vigil on the night of her death.
