Today would have been Henry's 19th birthday - if he hadn't decided to take his own life on May 8, 2007 by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. I will write more in time and include links to everything that is important to me nowadays - things I never even thought about or thought I needed to think about before.
But for today, I just want to say that it's been a better than expected day. I expected to spend it with a box of Kleenexes. Instead I "did something that mattered" which this time was adding a comment to an article in a newspaper, an article that was important to me and my family. And whenever I do something that matters (to me, anyway), I feel better.
