I've been told that the human mind cannot accurately remember pain.
I discovered tonight that this is a lie.
Tonight, I tried to watch the video Natalie posted about
the violent virus
that snatched our precious baby Gavin
from our family.
I could not bring myself to listen.
I had to play the video with the sound turned off.
But even that wasn't enough.
The pain, the helplessness, the anguish,
the shock, the despair,
the devastation . . .
all washed over me with a renewed vengeance.
The pain, as searing--as soul piercing--as it had been when
I stood helpless, trying to
comfort my suffering baby grandson
and his brave momma.
Please don't force another family to endure this.
Please vaccinate yourself against this disease.
It is making a return.
Protect our fragile little ones
from it's ravages.
