How did I get here – losing a child?
How could I let it happen? Did I?
Could I have done anything differently to prevent this unthinkableness?
I don’t ask why, or why us, why my daughter.
It happened. And yet . . .
I never thought this could happen to me, to us.
I remember a boy my age – died at 20 – a suicide
Now I know what his parents went through.
Now empathy . . .
LIFE IS JEOPARDY
