What does don’t be sorry be active mean?
It means I know you are sorry I lost my daughter .. I know you are sorry she suffered.. I know you are sorry she is gone and sorry that maybe even you miss her too…
But that sorry. Its not enough. Not enough because she is still fighting.. Her cells .. living and growing pieces of her.. they are fighting .. SHE is fighting but she needs help. Money. Awareness. Help to make both of those things happen.
Sorry isn’t enough for Jennifer.
And. And for your kids. Sorry isn’t enough for any of our kids.
Sorry doesn’t stop the tragedy.. the death…the suffering from happening. It just protects your eyes.. unless.. . it get drops inside your own home and you simply cannot avert your eyes any longer.
Let me pose this question.
Would you do more? Would you do it differently if it was your child?
When I first thought this last night talking aloud to Tony I replied to myself.. That well of course.. Of course everybody would do more if it was their child. ..
then I stopped because I was wrong …Both incredibly and sadly wrong..
Because I have friends.. ones that knew my Jennifer and ones that didn’t. That wouldn’t be able to do more. That fight like it was their child. That fight to make it so it isn’t. ..Incredible
So my question. My question is. ..
Is that you?
Are you as active as you be if it was your child? Are you as active as your child needs you to be?
If you can’t say yes.. well. .well then know my truth…
Know that 3 year ago I think that would have been me too. 3 years ago I wasn’t active. And I don’t think I would have been. .. even if it had been my friend’s child or my nephew .. so sad to realize.
I think I would have been sorry.. terribly sorry.. And I would have thought that was enough. I would have had reasons it was enough. ..
And I would have been wrong.
Are you as active as you are sorry? If not then change that.
I am now. But for my little family its simply too late.
I’m sorry sissy miss
eternally and forever sorry..
but i know.
thats not enough.
…until there is a cure.
