i have posted rather briefly about the good folks I have come to know here at Clear waters campground/trailer park. I left out the difficulty more than half of us. have with alcohol. Chronic in all seasons. Today one of my closer neighbors stripped down a walked towards the river weeping as he went. Another neighbor came and got me as I have been working in my way to help the man in question. I sat with him as he wept. "I see you having a bad day old son, what troubles you so?" It was 5 mins before he could bring himself to answer. "yesterday I went to work for my son. As I was leaving my son told me he loved me and I sensed the wrongness in it. But I said nothing. today he blew his brains out, the only child I had and now I have nothing." Still afraid he might try to drown himself I told him he cannot escape this pain. that it was his lot now to grieve and suffer his loss. Then I told he must stay in life to see his son buried and at rest in God. We sat for another 10 or 15 mins, he pulled his pants back on and went home to his empty trailer. "This shall pass." We too shall pass. There is no stopping what is to come, we are "hostage to fortune." If you can, please say a prayer for fathers who must bury their son's..
