A Note From Dad


This Silence

I cry out, longing to be heard. Where are you?  Why have you left me? I feel alone, caught in a whirlwind of emotions I can’t explain or control. The darkness sweeps over me like a flood raging out of control. When I cry out, all I hear is silence. The silence is deafening.  It […]
