The grief and the outcry, the outrage and the heightened resolve, the countless tears that fall in and between social media posts. ‘Why?’ is all around us. It’s a question that’s asked so many times, it eventually becomes devoid of sound. An unconscious movement of the mouth. A whisper, that dares an answer to come quietly and clearly from a room, somewhere down the long corridor of humanity.
