I eat black olives by the whole can, I don't buy books online and I hope to marry a man just like Steve Martin. Oh, and I proudly write for Hellogiggles.com.

When I was 17, the hottest kid in the entire world was this guy I knew at Governor’s School (basically an academic summer camp funded by the state). I’ll call him Kevin because he was Irish and that seems like a good Irish name. He was really smart and popular and athletic, and he had the most…

This girl.

“But some things will never change.”

I got into a fight the other day. Someone had mentioned riots in New Orleans, and I was at work, and I knew I should have shut my mouth, but I could not help myself. I had spoken up in defense — said I was proud, proclaimed the necessity to stand up for change. It didn’t stop there. This guy had spoken back, “dude, what are you even talking about?”

And I said, calmly, that I was talking about Mike Brown. The kid who had been killed by the police. The unarmed kid that was killed by the police. The unarmed kid who had been killed by the police for no reason. The unarmed BLACK kid that was killed by the police for no reason. And then that goddamn picture came out. The one with the peace sign. The one with the comments about him flashing gang signs. That goddamn picture…

My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.

To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…

Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams)
