    I'd share with all of you.
    So many people have had so many bad things happen lately! I'm heartened that the American people have stepped up for Newtown and Boston, and my family, too, with our small tragedy.

    Funny, Aji, some people do ask me, "Why do you need to be there?".  All I can do is stare in disbelief, wondering, what would they do if one of their loved ones was killed by another person? I bet they'd feel the same way you and I do.

    Love to you! Have a great day.

    •  Back atcha, hon. (8+ / 0-)

      I know - the "why would you want to" thing always got me.  Um . . .  because I HAVE to?  It wasn't like there was a choice.

      BTW, I haven't been able to get in and get my phone re-upped, so if you tried to text and got nothin', that's why. :-P  Hoping to take care of it this weekend.

      Fingers crossed for successful fundraising!

    •  it was no small tragedy... someone took your baby (5+ / 0-)

      I'm in KC, it was on the news here 24/7 till they found her.  I was so sorry that it ended the way it did.  She was a beautiful girl.  You have my deepest sympathy.

      •  thank you, sqmg - I will always feel (5+ / 0-)

        guilty that I wasn't there to protect her - I know my whole family has played the "what if" game ad nauseum.

        I'm moving forward, and trying to heal and help my family heal. I don't want them to have to worry about getting me down there and back, I'd rather they concentrate on the foundation that's been set up and their own healing, which is going to take longer and will be harder than mine.

          take care of yourself, don't blame anyone except the one responsible.

          Sending healing thoughts and love to you.
