I went to the funeral, my prayers are with the family the general feeling in our community is this for real?

to the point that even wishes of sympathy to this family feels worthless.

I know its a thought but this mother may never sleep a full night sleep, strenght or not this is cause for disability if ever one. Here's the reality in our culture both in US & Haiti alot of our children our going to jail, in jail, Juvi, gone thru DYS, DCF etc and what is preparing these family to reintegrate these traumatized children back in the family home or circle?

no making them outcast or being afraid of them etc. we can only imagine what they went thru in these facilities age groups stem young kids - 25yrs
