September 20001

Time has passed by so quickly and each month brings healing of some kind. It would be wrong of me not to say our lives have not " moved on ".   When Gary died it gave me some strange comfort to live my life constantly in the shadow of Gary's passing, perhaps I felt this would keep  us safe from anything else bad happening to our family. I know when you have lost a child these words bring little comfort and knowing the awful hurt and pain I only wish there were words that could comfort bereaved parents. 

Its only after two years that I can begin to understand what "moving on " might mean but its a start. If our children are to grow up happy and to have a full life as adults then I know this had to happen. It really is a journey into the unknown but as time passes I learn to appreciate its not all bad. If only when your child passes you could be transported from the terrible reality into that period it takes of learning  to live life again and to know its ok to live on then things might not be so bad. 

On 11th September 2001 an attack on " The Twin Towers of the World Trade Center" left thousands of lives shattered and in ruins. I only  hope that the God we know can help each of those families to get the strength and courage needed to keep living.  Although Gary died and left our lives shattered what has happened to the people of New York is thousands of times worse and so difficult to understand. I hope it will become a turning point for all the world  and not just the news on the t.v for a couple of weeks. My thoughts are with those who lost their lives on that day.
