I know it wasn't easy for you to reveal personal details and I thank and admire you for having the courage to do so.
You, August and Elaine have each posted personal perspectives. Each are heartfelt and from different origins. This is reflective (I think) of the individuality of emotion and belief.
There isn't one which should be placed above any other....each has lessons to teach and all should be saved and studied by those of us who have been fortunate enough not to (yet) reach that place.
But one lesson comes through loud and clear in all three.....the ego of the reader is the most dangerous, destructive and irrelevant element in this equation.
Humble pie tastes like crap, but those who refuse to partake shortchange none more than themselves.
Thanks for the lessons, Elaine, August and Simon.
