“Hurt” by Christina Aguilera is a song that makes me feel guilty. In the video, she loses her father, and this song reminds me of losing my father (in 1997). The last time I saw him was at my brother’s wedding about six weeks before he died. I knew he had kidney cancer a few years previously, but I didn’t know it spread to his liver and that he would die from the surgery to remove the tumor. I didn’t even know he was facing another surgery. I feel guilty because the last night I saw him, I didn’t spend more time with him. We did have a great time dancing, and we did bond that weekend. I said goodnight to him and went off to party with other people in the wedding party. In the morning when I woke up, he had already left for the airport. I never got to see him again.
