Reflecting on life

Written by Susan Ratliff on July 3, 2008. Posted in Uncategorized

Ok, so this is not about exhibiting.  It’s 10:44 PM on July 3rd.  Thirty one years ago my younger sister died in a drunken driving accident.  Six kids in the car.  Three lived, three died.  She was 15 years old.  I called my Mom today,  as I do this time every year, to reflect on life.  You never get over the death of a child.  She still cannot look at her picture.  Tomorrow will be one year ago that my husband Carey’s Father died.  He was 83.  A Marine.  (you’re never an ex-marine)  I used to love this holiday. Now it holds new meaning.  I wanted to keep this post short so I will end with a wish:  May our soldiers be safe, thank you for your service and God Bless America.
