This episode is mostly dedicated to one young woman, Elnaz, talking about her best friend Zeynab — a promising UofT student who was studying to be a doctor, and who wanted to work for Doctors Without Borders, and who wanted to fall in love.

While I’ll caution that the back half of this episode is already a little dated (given yesterday’s breaking news) the first half speaks to the profound pain that has gripped this country following the deaths of all aboard Flight 752. My heart goes out to all those mourning the beautiful people that were senselessly killed this week. The youngest on board was only one year old. It’s an incalculable loss and terrible shame.
