"Do not cheat thy heart and tell her, "Grief will pass away, Hope for fairer times in the future, and forget today"... tell her if you will, that sorrow need not come in vain: Tell her that the lesson taught her far outweighs the pain."
Does it? Today the pain outweighs it all. But oh, the lessons learned are so sacred. So powerful. Why is the price of learning so high? Today my body and soul are remembering what came into my life June 11, 2006.
