A Sibling's DecisonI looked down at my sister, who lay quietly in the cold hospital bed. Her eyes were closed, her skin was deathly pale. She seemed so serene; so peaceful, but I knew that she was anything but calm. It was only the medication that let her lye like this, and the oxygen mask that let he continue to stay alive.

whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
