Thank you, cancer.

Here's how cancer helps you love people who don't love each other.

Person A is complaining about Person B, taking me to task for not resenting Person B.

I tell Person A, "Today's the winter solstice. I was just thinking about the summer solstice six months ago, when I went to Annapolis to bury an old friend of mine who died from brain cancer. I don't have cancer. I'm pretty sure you don't have cancer. What are you complaining about?"

End of discussion.

Thank you, cancer.

Yeah, I work at VA HQ, so I see a lot of people with fewer limbs than they were born with.
