One Year Ago Today
Our Family learned what tragedy feels like
We learned about not being able to be in control
We learned that a tragic moment, as tragic as "ours" was,
doesn't always end with tragedy
For us we were lucky
He was lucky
He was given another chance
To relive his life
He's in school for radio broadcasting
He's producing and speaking on his own online sports talk radio station
He has changed
Changed with empathy, compassion, thankfulness and you name it
He experienced pain one year ago today
Pain that he doesn't remember
He still cannot recall the accident
We experienced pain on year ago today
Pain that when we allow ourselves to think about it
We can still remember that day
I'm thankful that in this circumstance, G-d allowed my brother to be given another chance.
But my heart also breaks for so many others, who, have not been granted that opportunity.
Be thankful today.
Stop and say a prayer about your family.
Breath them in
Be there for them
In one second, it could change.
I'm grateful that G-d didn't allow us to experience the full version of what that pain could have been like, had my brother been called Home to Him, instead.
