Angelspeake - Postscripts from the Other Side
Dear Barbara and Trudy,

A question I would love to have answered in the newsletter concerns NBC Correspondent David Bloom. It is almost a year since he passed in Iraq, covering the war. His passing was so sudden, and he was at the pinnacle of his life and career. Could you ask him if he has any insight as to why he had to go at that time, and why perhaps, so many people were drawn to him and devastated by his passing?

Thank you very much.
With Love,
Sarah P’

Dear Sarah and all the others who cared about me and my work. No one dies accidentally. No one! Our deaths are orchestrated by our own choice to make our final statement about the way we lived. I was an adventurer. Can you imagine me dying as an old man in a sick bed? Neither could I.

Yes, it is sad to lose a loved one to death, but if you could see it from this side, you would know that there is no death, and my absence from my dear wife and my children is only temporary. Just a blink of an eye, so to speak.

Here is the statement I want to make. I want you to be aware that there are many sad stories during a war. There are many secondary tragedies that have nothing to do with bullets and armies and political decisions. The common man is affected just as much as the soldier. The child, sleeping in his crib is just as much at risk. War is not about good guys and bad guys. It is about the common man who dies from an unrelated cause. The stress of war condemns the world to a type of death, for if I died in Iraq, so did a part of you in the United States, or England, or Australia, or Pago Pago. I received many accolades in the press and television because I was one of them. Because of that coverage, even those of you who had never heard of me before grieved for me personally. It was your way to show that you felt the sadness of the war and the tragedies that happened because of it. Hemingway said it in “For Whom the Bell Tolls”. It does, indeed, toll for everyone.

Many others will die in this conflict and others which will come to pass. Pray for them. Love them. Grieve for them. Feel the pain of the absence of their bodies from earth. It is the only way we can begin to understand the sanctity of each soul, and the pain of war wherever you live.
