A confluence of events have overtaken me and several of those I love. I can not blog on these events; they do not belong to me. The events converge, washing over my body and soul, carrying me with them like the joining of powerful rivers. I struggle to stay afloat and offer a helping hand. The others are in the river, far deeper than I am, their struggle more desperate; they need my help. Who do I reach out to first? How do we get through? Where has my strength gone? Will I drown? I feel lost. I am ashamed that the thought "why me?" keeps surfacing. Why not me? Or a much better question: "Why them?"
