“I can’t stop watching her because I can’t work out exactly how I feel about her dying. Her death is not something unexpected, after all – it had been coming down the tunnel for a long time. And yet it still rattled everyone – our preparedness is no preparation at all.

‘This is how we will feel when polar bears finally become extinct,” I think, “after all that sad waiting. Or when the last tiger dies.’

We still won’t quite understand why – even though we watched almost every minute of it happen.”

Caitlin Moran, The Times Magazine, 6th August 2011
