Hard to believe 16 years ago my life was perfect at 6 a.m. but by 6:04 my world had changed forever. I was so blessed to have found a good man & fall in love but watching him die in front of me never goes away. In time all memories soften. You move on, build a good life, do things you didn't think you could do and try to help others going thru the same grief. But you never forget the day everything changed. You see the world with different eyes others don't see. Searching for passion I picked up a camera and found joy and success I couldn't have imagined in those early days of grief.
Thou different I can't help but feel the pain and heartbreak the parents and families of the 17 people who died this week and know they will never be the same. All death is hard but sudden death often leaves us with so many questions that go unanswered and words unsaid. My heart also goes out to two of my PT friends who lost loved ones this week.
