The ties, and tears, that bind

Brian McGrory’s column “Warren’s private agony” (Metro, Nov. 30), about the death of Elizabeth Warren’s dog, Otis, five days before the election, offered a heartfelt, sweet reminder about the things that bind us together.

While our news is often dominated by the impersonal strains of political division and worldwide conflict, McGrory offered a glimpse into the private joys and heartbreak common to all of us. Such moments remind us of all the things we share as human beings.


For those among us who are “dog people,” the words resonated in a touching fashion.
