Some get used to it, I suppose, and some don't. I wonder what makes the difference.

Speaking as an often numb human being, I'm glad you haven't.

Your article is a very moving and very personal account of trying to cope with an extreme situation. A high degree of compassion often leads to feelings of helplessness in the cold light of the unavoidable.

For a different take on the topic of death and dying, and of how to reconcile loss, please see A letter.

I have bookmarked your blog and will monitor your postings with great interest.
