Facing the worst in human nature is both a sobering and heart-breaking thing. It's hard to understand and comprehend sometimes why others can be so blind to another's pain. Blind to the point that they think they are justified and righteous in their actions and words. Even worst why they inflict more pain at a person's worst times in life.
When my sister died my family fought over her belongings. They fought over who would be guardians of her children. They lost the whole big picture of how she died, and how much her children needed a family that was supportive and not divisive. I've ha d a hard time forgiving them, and especially my mother for that. My sister was a perfect example of forgiveness. She would say that people can only act within the boundaries of their perfection. She understood that it was human nature to act cruel. She saw deeper into them. She saw that they were hurting too.
I think sometimes people are so caught up in their own misery and their own world of pain that they lash out, or feel the need to place blame on others. YOu know in your heart you were a good friend. YOu know that you tried to be there for Nathan, and you must know that you have comforted him in times he needed it. He ha s not died in vain. We will remember him here. We'll use this loss of his life as fuel to fan the fire of our fight for awareness.
I wish I could comfort you.
You are in my prayers, i hope you find comfort in your heart after this day.
