    His Name Was Harry

    How do you grieve for someone you never got the chance to know, never grew up with to see how they would turn out and never know how they may have influenced your own life? My brother died when he was seven years old, barely scratching the surface of a life he would never come to realise. I was two years old at the time, so memories of my brother are vague and fleeting. Sixty years later and I find myself grieving for the brother I never got to know. It’s not the immediate and impacting grief that someone would experience from losing someone close, such as a mother, father, grandmother, etc. this was a slow burning grief that only showed its face recently. As I was clearing out for a house move I discovered a little package of items that were unknown to me; it was several school work books, letters of condolence and items that my brother had made along with some of his Cubs and Scout objects. There was also a double wallet photo book with two amazing photos of my brother. Alone and looking over these amazing slices of a time gone by, there was a tug at my heart and I knew there was grief in the air. Grief for a brother I never got to grow up with, grief for wondering how he would have turned out, grief for wondering what, if any, influence he would have played in shaping my own life. There was also grief for my mother to have suffered the pain of losing a child for so many decades until her passing. I knew of my brother but did not know my brother. Finding these items gave me a glimpse of his early life and achievements and based on what I discovered I just knew my brother would have grown up to be a good person and we would have been best of friends. My only recollection and memory of my brother was when he had just started school and my mother was telling me that it would be my turn soon. I wasn’t happy at the prospect, bear in mind I was only two years old at the time, and my brother put his arm around me and said, “don’t worry, I’ll look after you”. How strange that in those two years in my life and the seven years in my brother’s, that is all I can recall. My mother and father never spoke about my brother, or even told me of these amazing items in a treasure trove of memories existing. I guess it was a painful topic for them and they did not want to revisit those times. It’s a shame that they could not tell me about my brother as I would have loved to have known more about him. I was too timid to ask for fear of causing upset, so I steered clear of the subject; more fool me in hindsight. So, seeing my brother’s little treasure trove, reading the condolences and telegrams from family, friends and school teachers, seeing the items he had made for the Christmas tree and all the other amazing items that told a story of a young boy who was never to be; it brought a tear to my eye and an ache in my heart. Even finding out that his birthday was on September 6th was a revelation to me – I buy a birthday card now and say a little prayer to let his Spirit know that I am thinking of him, even after all these years. My brother’s name was Harry and he is now a part of my life, even if only in Spirit and for those wonderful items I found by chance; they say that everything happens for a reason, finding out a little about my brother Harry must have been meant to be. I feel a better and humbler person for that find. Grief is a very personal experience and it knows no time – it can be fleeting, or it can last a lifetime. Remembering is the best and the worst of those times, it can lift your Spirits or it can break your heart over and over and over again, but I would not swap those feelings or the experience of grief for anything. Finding my brother has helped me to find a part of me that was missing; for two years I lived alongside with my brother, for a lifetime and beyond I will love him always. - David Cobbledick

    My Own Experience

    Hello My Friends, I wanted to share my some of my personal experience with you, in hopes you could get some assurance that what afflicts you will turn around. I learned that by simply talking, while it may not change your life, it might just help you, in the now. it is important to know you are loved, to know you just need to talk, and let it off your chest, and finally to simply know you do mean something to someone. Remember, a stranger is just a friend you have yet to meet.

    Mother Teresa - Woman of Mystery

    It is clear that mother Teresa is one of the most iconic figures in the world, and I have always wondered myself, just how iconic, mainly, because she had won a Nobel Peace Prize and if I am to be honest, I wanted to see if she was, indeed, worth all the hype and attention she was receiving (it is this little skeptic in me) I have been told, you never take something for face value, do the research. This is what I found. Born Aug. 26, 1910, in Macedonia to a financially comfortable Albanian family (they owned two houses, one of which they lived in). When she was 18, Agnes left home and joined the Sisters of Loreto in Rathfarnham, Ireland. After she left home, she never saw her mother or sister again. She lived to be 87. Sister Teresa began teaching history and geography in Calcutta at St. Mary’s, a high school for the daughters of the wealthy. She taught for 15 years (there is some speculation as to the amount of time she spent teaching. Some researchers suggest that her teaching career lasted more on the upward scale of 20 years) She was honored with many awards throughout her life, from the Indian Padma Shri in 1962 to the inaugural Pope John XXIII Peace Prize in 1971 to Albania’s Golden Honor of the Nation in 1994… and, most famously, the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. But wait, there is more. Her clinics received millions of dollars in donations, yet their conditions were appalling (Shortage of medical care, systemic diagnosis, and necessary nutrition, as well as, a decided lack of painkillers). She went on record stating to a cancer patient "Pain means Jesus is near you, suffering is an opportunity to share in the passion of Christ". She also stated on record the following "I compare suffering to kisses from Jesus". She accepted advanced western medicine for her heart condition, while routinely denied painkillers to the sick and dying in her care. She has stated that she never intended on elevating poverty, her goal was to expand (to grow) the number of Catholics. She has been recorded in stating "I am not a social worker, I do not do it for this reason, I do it for the church." She never offered aid (monetary or otherwise) to natural disaster victims in India, instead she offered prayer and medallions. She accepted grant money from the "Duvalier Dictatorship", whom killed over 30,000 Haitians between 1958 and 1986. Of the hundreds of millions of dollars raised not only in her lifetime, but in her name, much of that money vanished from the charity accounts into several secret bank accounts that she kept, it is believed she did this to give it to the catholic church.
