Dear Dad

Do You remember, on a hot day in August a few months ago, you did something very strange. Something, I would have never expected you – You, of all people – to do: You died.
I still do not understand, why you did what you did. It was so out of character. But now, suddenly, everyone is doing it. The young and the old, the rich and the poor, the beautiful, the ugly, the good and the bad. I think you were onto something there, you captured the spirit of the times.
I wonder though, if this is genuine, or just another short lived phenomenon of our consumer society.
