I stumbled I 'falled', just as you...

''Her entire world had come crashing down'', she thought to herself sitting balled up against the wall, hidden in a corner of the dark -now empty- classroom. Tears were rushing down her face, hiccups repressed inside her chest lest someone passing by heard her. Hands holding her head bent, she kept thinking, ''How do I face them, I did this, It's all my fault and there IS no fixing this, but what now?''

In that moment, the 16 year old had no idea what other kind of miseries awaited her in the many more years to come; each misery seemingly the worst in that moment of time...




If she could only express to her darling babe that she totally and completely understood what it felt like to think 'your world had just come crashing down and all else had stopped to exist'! She had truly, in all surreality of it, lived it more than a decade ago...

Ever since before then, in picking up the pieces and surging on ahead she had always believed, and that is what she prayed for her. To never let that moment of numbness grip her entirety beyond a little, that is, for only enough time to get her bearings into order, make a plan, and then move on to achieve it...

Ameen.
