We Live In A World Where Bad Things Happen Sometimes

Come here. Sit down. We need to talk. Now listen, I want you to know I love you and everything is going to be okay, but what I’m about to tell you is going to be very upsetting to you. It will probably make you angry. And I get that. It is normal to feel angry when you are confronted with something unfair. I know you get irritated when I say, “Life isn’t fair,” but it really isn’t, and part of growing up and being an adult is learning that when things don’t go your way — when the system is obviously flawed and you want to smash your fists against a wall to protest over the injustice of it all — you need to take a moment to compose yourself, accept that the world doesn’t always work the way you want it to, and do what you can to change things so that next time the situation allows for a little more righteousness. Okay, take a deep breath. Are you ready? I’m sorry to tell you this, but there is the possibility that Hamilton might not win the most Tonys of all time. It might not even get the most nominations. Hey, hey, don’t cry, it’s going to be fine! No, I can’t believe it either. Shhhh. Okay, just relax. It could still be okay! All we can do is hope. Anyway, I’m here for you. We’ll get through this together. Shhhh.
