On Losing a Child

 

The tragedy of losing a child is a tragedy for all. For the parents, burying their child is the single WORST thing that can happen. There is no greater pain that can befall a parent. It is a pain beyond imagining. No one but those of us who have buried a child can know that pain and none would wish that pain on anyone including our worst enemies.

It is also a tragedy for Society at large, for they will never know the adult that the child would have become, never know the contributions that adult would make, never know the love that that adult would continue to give.

It is a horrible thing to lose a little one before her time.
