I read this morning on CNN.com that John Travolta is having a difficult time dealing with his son Jett's death. Travolta is unable to do the promotional circuit to promote his new movie, due out in June.
What I want to talk about today isn't about celebrities, because despite my recent posts about such, I'm not a celeb follower. I want to talk about the loss of a child.
I honestly can't imagine how parents get out of bed each day after losing a child. HOW do you go on? HOW do you pick up the pieces? HOW do you reconcile having your child in "a better place" when you think the better place would be right with you? My stomach aches at the mere *thought* of a child's death. And my heart goes out to all the parents who have ever had to deal with such an unfathomable tragedy.
Death. Wow...I had a hard time even typing that word. A child's death is one of those areas where I refuse to let my mind wander. I can't even consider the "what ifs" in regard to my own children. It feels like a jinx somehow to even think "what if." So I can't. I won't.
What about you?
