strength

I have read a variety of quotes with a similar message. I think anyone who has dealt with trauma, loss or tragedy has come face-to-face with this choice. I also think that, at times, we have all chosen each one of the three options. I just hope that as we all get further from the moment that provoked this epiphany, we manage to choose to let this event strengthen us. To grow instead of be wilted. To swim, not sink. There is no need for one life to be wasted for the sole reason that one life was lost.

My wife, Frances, of 8 years recently died of cancer. I've been surfing and reading many different opinions of
'life after death'. It's reassuring to know that all is not lost! (not that I believed it was...)
