Now that I'm an adult, I can see it doesn't get any clearer with age. There are no reasons, no magical things to say or do to make it better. It's still the same.
I thought today of all the people all over the world that are thinking of Laura. In our expat transient world she managed in a short time to make friends from all over the globe. Her parents being who they are, have people who adore them everywhere. I know there are a group of us here in Qatar, others in Perth, friends in Scotland, more in Dubai. A tribe in England.
There's so many of us. Wishing we could make it better.
