The Other Side
Of all the things I've written for this site, one stands out as being the most personal to me.
I've chronicled a lot of my own minor catastrophes and dramas, as well as those of a few others, but a piece from January of last year which dealt with a girl I knew in high school who endured an unimaginable tragedy -- that was the hardest one to get through.
At the center of it was the torturous question of where she might be and what might have happened to her.
Two nights ago, I got an answer.
She contacted me -- after someone sent her what I'd written.
I can't even begin to express how great she's doing -- despite all she's been through -- or how happy it makes me to be able to say that.
