This - a life irrevocably altered by a fiery plane crash
This - being the mother who has lost her son and grandson given the same name
This - having a baby drown in the bathtub on my watch; alive but struggling to survive
This - being the daughter of the mother who lost her son and then my own son given the same name.
and suddenly I have perspective. My life is not that bad. My troubles are not that awful. My heart ache is minor. My trials are mine to bear and I have the strength to do it. If they can do it, so can I.
