14 Aug Two Years
Two years ago today, we lost our son, Dragon Kim. Bright, funny, talented, kind. How I miss him. How my heart aches for his presence. How I wish he were here.
I recently picked up a book of poetry compiled by Carolyn Kennedy, the daughter of President John F. Kennedy and sister to John Kennedy Jr. From that book, here are Carolyn’s wise words about loss: “In my family, we have faced a good deal of loss. When we lose someone before their time, it takes the rest of our lives to understand, or to accept that we never will. We can stay connected to their spirit by doing things they enjoyed, caring for those they loved, sharing memories with their friends, and living and working for the things they believed in.”
The Dragon Kim Foundation has allowed us to do all those things. Thank you for helping us help children find and explore their passions. Thank you for helping us keep Dragon’s spirit and memory alive. Thank you for supporting us in doing the things Dragon believed in.
I miss you, Dragon.
