    Missing You, Soul Sister

    Hey Soul Sister,

    It's been a while since I've written to you like this for help. I don't suppose there's much help that you can do for me now. But the truth is that when we go to someone for help, it's the talking to them that does the trick. Some people allow you to talk a certain way. You were always so open and caring and accepting. I didn't have to be anything to you.

    Stuck Before the Border!

    I drove 14 hours to the border... only for my PCR test results to be delayed!

    Thankfully, I have a warm rental car to sleep in, and online buddies to watch South Park with! I don't need help, nor am I worried.

    Just wanted to post this to remember this!

What happened? This implies you were in an accident. Most importantly, was it your fault, cause if it is then you are paying. If I ever get into an accident I pray that it's the other person's fault

If a car accident makes you adult, then what of witnessing a death in front of you as a child, make you?

Oh.... I thought you would say something like traumatized or damaged.

To be fair, there is a wide range of possible outcomes if a child witnesses death.

If the child is too young to understand what is happening, then the event might just be a curious memory on their mind.

What if they are witnessing the death of a loved one who had been suffering (say from cancer, for example) prior to dying? They might understand that death is a form of release. If not immediately, then given time and thought.

Witnessing a violent death or the death of a peer? Certainly traumatizing and damaging to them.


As an example, my great-grandfather passed away when my grandmother was four years old. She tells me she stopped talking for years and eventually started talking again when she was in elementary school.


She is the most talkative person I've ever known or met.
