Tragedies and statistics

Eric Maria Remarque is often robbed of the proper attribution for the one-man’s-death quote.

One person’s death is a tragedy

In the same way that one star appears to blink, tiny in the vast night sky

But with both stars and humans,

individuals and myriads matter

Leaving slashing black holes when they have left us
