Welcome to WhoWeLostKY, a sheltering place for stories of loss and remembrance. This site began as a place to memorialize Kentuckians lost to the pandemic. But the recent devastation we have suffered, from the floods in Eastern Kentucky and the tornadoes in the West, mean that this project must now evolve and be a safe space to include all these stories of loss.
We believe that this site must remain free of comments and judgments. We believe that stories of loss must keep company together. We invite you to write about who and what and where — all that matters to you, all that you miss. Let’s go beyond social media posts and noise, to honor the necessity of memory. Kentucky, we must remember.
