Baby Charlie


I cannot imagine losing a child. The thought an unspeakable horror. There’s no way to fathom the crushing grief of his parents. Their private anguish played out on a world stage. Parents aren’t meant to outlive their children. Charlie, born with a debilitating illness, is kept alive by machines.
Like any parent they’ve hoped to find a cure for his genetic disorder. Today they decided to take him off life support. The American doctor they sought for experimental treatment telling them it was too late. Their time now spent with what remains of Charlie’s life.
My heart breaks for them and their pending loss. Sending love and prayers to them in their grief. Thankful every day for the health of my loved ones. Knowing how precious life is and how fragile. Namaste.
