Death

by Hilary
It's such a strong word.

You never really think anything of it when you hear some stranger died. You know like Elvis Presley or Michael Jackson. It's so different when you have to hear it with a name you know.

That's what I had to hear. "Kids,daddy died." Those were the exact words I heard when my dad died.

Death is something you have to experience close by before you fully understand it.
