If several emails arrive about one subject, probably there are lots of readers wondering about the same thing. Here are some of those things:
- Q: Are you still grieving for David? A: No. I am not grieving. But I still think about him a lot. Others who knew him still think of him too. I received an email from a co-worker of David's who wrote that he has not removed David's phone listing. He just cannot get himself to do that yet.
- Q: Why do you keep writing about David? Especially writing that he killed himself?
A: I write in my blog about what I do and what goes on in my mind. I understand that for some readers, the subject of suicide is uncomfortable. However, suicide is not an uncomfortable subject for me. I carry no shame because my son killed himself. In fact, I believe that my bringing up this subject often is healthy. At least it is for me.
- Q: Why do you stay in one place? You hardly move around anymore?
A: San Diego is a wonderful place. I feel very lucky to be here. Especially right now because the weather is so nice. Later this week I am flying to the San Francisco Bay area for a few days. There is a birthday party for some of my immediate family members. When I return to San Diego, I plan to remain here for awhile and then return to Mexico.
- Q: Isn't it dangerous in Mexico? A: There is an unfortunate drug war going on in Mexico. I was in Mexico for three years during that drug war and I did not experience any problems.
