Re: Local tragedy strikes here...I won't tell Mom..
I try not to tell my mom anything until the very last moment and then if it doesn't affect her personally I don't tell her at all! There are a few times I have broken my own rule and then I go home and give myself a bif to the head...what were you thinking??? It's just that sometimes I forget she isn't the woman she used to be..someone I can tell most anything to..
I too found my mom watching the news of that crash...I kept telling her to turn it off but she said..."I thought maybe I'd see Chuck". (her dead husband who died over a year ago.)
She thought that in that scene of horror on the screen she might see the souls of those lost.
Bless them all.
