Crying about a dead man never did anything / painting about him might
Dan Kapis died after being hit by car on the way to a wedding.
A lot of people wrote about him after he was dubbed "The Lonely Man" by a particular British rag website. I'm not linking to the story because it's pathetic click bate of a story.
This is a little more thoughtful.
I wanted to paint a picture of Dan after hearing his story because I got pretty upset–but realized quickly that crying was pointless and making something wasn't.
