Sometimes there are no words, no clever quotes to neatly sum up what’s happened that day. Sometimes you do everything right,everything exactly right, and still you feel like you’ve failed.
Did it need to end that way? Could something have been done to prevent the tragedy in the first place? 89 murders at the pig farm. The deaths of Mason and Lucas Turner make 91 lives snuffed out. Kelly Shane will go home and try to recover, to reconnect with her family, but she’ll never be a child again. William Hightower, who gave his leg for his country, gave the rest of himself to avenge his sister’s murder. That makes 93 lives forever altered, not counting family and friends in a small town in Sarnia, Ontario , who thought monsters didn’t exist until they learned that they spent their lives with one.
And what about my team? How many more times will they be able to look into the abyss? How many more times before they won’t ever recover the pieces of themselves that this job takes?
Like I said, sometimes there are no words, no clever quotes to neatly sum up what’s happened that day.
Sometimes the day just… Ends.
