Does anyone ever remember asking that? It would be a rare and strange occurrence if it did. But for a mom in Ireland, it really did strike twice. Losing one child is sad enough but losing two children in a short time frame of two months is so utterly devastating and incomprehensible. When I woke up this morning and read about it in a Tweet I got this morning, I was shocked and saddened at the same time. I can only express my sincere condolecences to the family of Erin and Shannon. I know how hard it is to lose one child but not two. I am hoping that one day soon I can connect with the parents of these two girls. On the same note, I would like to reach out to the family of Jessica L who passed away on the weekend. I have to say also that I get disgusted when the media (not our media) posts the means of death. Now why is that newsworthy. If a child dies, a child dies. There is no gain in telling anyone the means unless they are friends and that is what is decided..
I never thought I would say this and be so happy about it … I am tired. I don’t think I can finish this blog post even though I have lots to say. Sleep first, write later.
Good night friends,
