“How would you understand the brokenhearted had your own heart not been broken?”

Those are strong and good words.

But I wonder if we shouldn't rethink the usefulness of suffering. I say all the ways in which one can suffer have already been experienced - and recorded in our collective consciousness. Thousands of years of tragedy. Just pick up a book, go to a movie, listen to a song, talk to an elder, surf the web...what need is there now for a life to crash and burn for us to know how to relate to each other? They say suffering has a purpose, I say BEEN THERE DONE THAT! Thanks but no thanks, I'm through! Time to move on.

On another note, good luck with your "giant research project". Maybe someday you'll share the topic with us. And I hope that your son's surgery goes well. I look forward to you having a lot to say. Now let me leave you with something that always brings me comfort.

"No one ever dies."

It's as close to the Truth as I've come so far.

One Love,
