My Family is Underground

How does a life defined by death affect the course of history?

Key Points

  • Because so many family members died before I was even born, entire branches and history were lost to me.

  • Throughout my life, the rate of death has only accelerated to the point where there are more people underground than there are those walking on it.

  • Death has taken many other forms, including of the self due to dementia, of relationships due to estrangement, and of connection due to disappearance.
