We Never Know

I know much has been said about the tragedy of Robin Williams death.  It was shocking.  But, to me maybe not so much...You see, we lost a nephew, to suicide.  It made us all...ask, WHY!?  We will never know.  David, left us way too soon and our grief lingers still.  Always will.  We are praying for those who know this pain, so shocking that it leaves you numb in disbelief.  All we can do is cling to a loving God, who willingly gave His own Son...He understands.

I just read this...sad but true.

Whenever Richard Cory went down town.
We people on the pavement looked at him: 
He was a gentleman from sole to crown, 
Clean favored, and imperially slim. 

And he was always quietly arrayed, 
And he was always human when he talked; 
But still he fluttered pulses when he said, 
'Good-morning,' and he glittered when he walked. 

And he was rich - yes, richer than a king - 
And admirably schooled in every grace: 
In fine, we thought that he was everything 
To make us wish that we were in his place. 

So on we worked, and waited for the light, 
And went without the meat, and cursed the bread; 
And Richard Cory, one calm summer night, 
Went home and put a bullet through his head.
