Two nights ago, I dreamt of my friend Robinson's ashes. Detriot rapper Proof, member of Eminem's group D12 and the inspiration for Mekhi Phifer's character in 8 Mile
, was shot and killed sometime this morning. This Friday, it will have been two years since a friend of mine was killed in a helicopter accident in Iraq. Another death has occured in my community, one which I have no place talking about on the internet. Other passings are coming to mind, but I will stop there. I send my condolences and prayers to all the families.
