I am not in a space where I want to write about it, but I also find it hard to be silent about something so enormous in our lives. So, I will say this: a member of my family was seriously injured while outside of our home, and there is an ongoing investigation into what happened.
What I feared, what I alluded to in my last post, is everything that would come next. It has been as chaotic and difficult as I anticipated when I wrote that. My employer flew my entire family back to the U.S. for medical and mental health services. We are here indefinitely, trying to sort out what to do next. I'm on leave for now, trying to help my family get through this. Our lives are upside down, and there are more questions than answers. Physically, we will all be fine. I'm confident that we will get there mentally, as well, but this space that we are in right now is so incredibly difficult.
