In life, sometimes, what can haunt us is regret for not having done a particular task.
This doesn’t haunt me, although, I do regret missing out on personally interviewing a specific gentleman who passed away,
exactly one year ago.
Do I know many details about his life?
Yes, of course I do.
Facts have a more heartfelt resonance when they are told to me by the person whose life I am writing about.
From what I am told, this gentleman was a kind story-teller with patience and a warm personality.
I feel that now he is in a much better, more serene, peaceful place.
And if he is able to watch over his family from that place, I feel that he would have a saddened heart;
Seeing one of his adult children perpetuating evil vile hateful venom, day in and day out, towards infant children to the elderly and to everyone in between.
Just hurting people.
Never sheltering anyone from harm.
Continually causing harm and injury.
This gentleman and I are probably wondering the same things about this grown woman, his daughter:
“Why is she so filled with anger, hatred, and relentless meanness? Why? When did her troubles begin? What event in her life triggered her into madness and despair?”
And of course,
“Could anything have been done differently, that would have prevented her from this odd life of oppressed rage?”
These questions remain unanswered.
I’ll do my absolute best to find all of the answers.
I guarantee that.
