No Paradise

I was on Kaua’i for eight days in March, and three people drowned during that time. Death is a tragedy. It has a lasting, awful impact on the families. Sunday night while I was on the phone with a friend, a pedestrian was decapitated by someone driving a stolen car with a mountain bike on top of it. I watched three helicopters search for the suspect, as yet unfound.

War is terrible. People get killed. Massacres are horrible. It is impossible to say one massacre is worse than another.

We must go on living, and take care of each other. There are many problems to face, sudden death is only one.
