A good friend of mine lost her 4month old son last night. I know it's cliche to be surprised by death in an infant... 100 years ago this sort of thing was more common and/ or even expected. I can't wrap my mind around it, though. It's difficult enough coming to terms with a dead adult/ senior person, but an infant.... it feels like the movies, you know? Why is it so difficult to understand these things? I am a relatively rational person... I think. But this concept is bouncing off my psyche like a moth against the glass. It makes sense theoretically... but it doesn't feel real. How can he be just.... gone? Her whole way of life is like a dissipating cloud. Poof. What do you all do to come to terms with the reality of grievous situations like this?
