Iranian conjoined twins don’t make it

I’m not sure why this story affects me so deeply, but I’m very sad about the death of Laleh and Ladan. Until this morning I didn’t even know their names, but every time I saw their smiling faces on TV, their heads at the same rakish angle they’d been at for 29 years, I rooted for them. I wanted them to have their normal life and that the pursuit of it killed them both is heartbreaking. RIP, ladies.
