There’s only one matter I can write about today: the life and death of my brother Alex Slepoy. He was so complex, understanding, brilliant, humble, generous, an amazing teacher. Alex was a wonderful father to his children, a talented physicist, a person who was loved by many. He suffered a lot at the end. I wish I could have saved him.

Grief is a painful emotion, but there are times when it is worse than others, when someone dies prematurely and leaves behind a family, people who need to go on.

Human nature is so complex, and in line with the topic of human development, one thing comes to mind at this time of pain – we human beings know very little about life and death.
