I stepped into the market to buy a pack of gum to content myself as I marched on a second line. The cashier was feeling conversational so I engaged him for a moment.

His brother was killed in the doorway of the business.

What do you say to that? He went on as if nothing happened but you could feel his grief.

I asked him how he dealt with his loss. He said he got up and came to work the next morning, and the morning after that one.
