I hate funerals. Not because I don’t want to honor people, but because they’re typically too formal, structured, and therefore, unnatural. I insist on being myself under all circumstances, and people are uncomfortable with unstructured grief.

There is something tragic about the Kennedy family. I’m not sure what it is. They are America’s royal family.

How strange, that I cannot identify with them in the least. This family has shared more public tragedies than any other. May God bless the remaining Kennedys. May He reveal Himself to them in awesome and wondrous ways.
