Learning to cope after the passing of a beloved Aunt
I am sad and lost,because it was just two short weeks ago that we received a call that would alter our family's lives forever. My cousin Frank called to inform us that the woman who had been there for me all my life and was more than just an Aunt,but also a best friend,had died in her sleep. We still don't know what caused her death because she seemed fine the last time we saw her,which had only been a few weeks prior.
As I write this I'm feeling lots of things right now. But grief and anger have to be at the top of the list! Within the next few days a young beautiful mother of 2 small children that just happened to be one of my classmates will be laid to rest. Why? Because her husband decided to strangle her with a telephone cord and leave her to die, then kill himself afterwards. For the last 3 days she has been hooked up to life support, but this morning her family finally made the agonizing decision to let her go. Now myself,my other fellow classmates, and the rest of her family and friends are left asking "why?" and 2 innocent children will grow up without parents. So,I just wanna know,where does it stop? When are women gonna FINALLY draw the line and say "ENOUGH!" How many more lives are gonna be lost at the hands of people who claim to love them and cherish them and then in the blink of an eye turn on them.
