Nepotism

Today, on the evening news, was the story of an animal shelter director who is being investigated for animal cruelty, nepotism, and creating a toxic work environment. "Nepotism" triggered a memory of me and my father watching a television show one night many years ago. The word came up during a show and we didn't know what it meant so I got my little blue dictionary out and looked it up for us. Interesting how one word can bring back an entire life. The memory made me cry, and I said to myself This is why grief never ends.
