You are not one of us, so please do not pretend to be
We understand that you are trying to comfort us, we do, but saying things like "I get it," or "It'll be OK," does not make us feel any better.
We got some of what is supposed to be the best memories of our lives taken from us. You did not.
You likely got to celebrate your senior prom, high school graduation, college senior spring and senior week, and your college graduation. We simply do not get to celebrate these things. We don't even get the chance to.
