Different Strokes

My father was killed by a series of strokes.  How strange that word seems.  In other contexts, strokes mean something calm and soothing (as in pets) or purposeful (as in sports).  But no, my father wasn’t coaxed gently into the night.  Nor were the strokes he endured in any way purposeful.  Unless, of course, their purpose was to leave him bewildered, scared and angry.
