What does loyalty mean to you?

Loyalty is a strange thing. It is rare. It is unspoken. It is something that you can’t necessary write about, because it is action driven.

I’m getting older. People are dying. And I hate the fact that people step up to the plate of friendship, or otherwise, when someone is dying in a hospital bed. What about the last two weeks, the last ten years? Why do you have to be near death to find your mere...
