Something you never hope to do
I think the answer is obvious.
For almost every single one of us.
I pray that in my life, I will never have to bury a child.
That is the greatest fear when you become a parent.
One of my very dear friends had to do it.
I cannot even begin to fathom what she went through, and what she still must be going through.
My heart aches at what could have been for that beautiful little girl.
I cry as I type this.
I cry for the loss of her life.
I weep for my friend’s pain and despair.
I hurt for the presence that this world has lost.
I think that when we hear a story of a child passing, we automatically imagine ourselves in that situation, and then put it out of our minds as quickly as possible.
No one wants to EVER think about that.
And yet some have to live with it every.single.day.
I pray to G-D that I never have to do that.
What do you hope you never have to do?
