I Don’t Understand.
Less than a year ago, one of Dylan’s friends lost his brother – a tragic death, at only 19 – which was a cruel and awful blow for the family. Yesterday, after a two-year battle, that same friend’s father succumbed to cancer.
I don’t feel like writing a parenting blog today.
I feel like crying – for the darling young boy who has lost so much in the past few months, for a family that has undergone so much tragedy, for people everywhere who think they can’t possibly stand another minute of pain – and then get hit with a blow like this.
I don’t understand death. I don’t understand all the good people who suddenly disappear. I don’t understand why some of us make it to their next birthday, and others don’t.
I don’t understand.
I just know it hurts.
