Wednesday's Women No. 4













Julie with her two little angels claiming a shoulder each. I think the children are 8 and 6, her son being the older of the two.

Boy they sure look alike, and they sure look like they are having fun on a beach somewhere in New Brunswick. Aren’t their freckled little faces too much? Too happy, too beautiful, and now I am sure too sad.

You can’t really tell in this picture of Julie, but she was a teacher in Kuwait before she had her little angels. Julie went back to work as a resource teacher in New Brunswick this September after battling a monster that she thought had been killed.

Please no bullshit about being in a better place. After all look at her and look at the children’s faces. Where could be better than that?

No bullshit you can be sure. There is no better place than with your children (or your mom). There are no words for the depth of this horrible injustice. God Bless her little angels.

I'm so sorry.

Late answer...There is no better place at the moment.But that's because I'm a Christian who believes that the dead will only rise to consciousness at the second coming.Being in the cold dark earth is certainly not better than being with one's children.
