MY step-dad

by Tyler Norris
(Terre Haute, IN)

My Step dad was like a father to me he raised me my whole life I loved him with all my heart... about two years ago he was an iron worker on day some stupid guy hit him in the neck with a 2 ton steel beam... the doctors said he wouldn't make it but he did.. he was paralyzed though. He had to go through rehabilitation and everything but we got to bring him home on Christmas and in the middle of the night his breathing machine came out and he died.. I just cant get the thought out of my head of what he went through and I don't see why god choose him he was a good man.. Please help me

Tyler I am sorry for your loss of your step dad. Life is so cruel to one so young to lose a father. It is such a cruel tragedy. To recover and then die from stupid fault.
try and see a counsellor who can help you through your grief as it is a very painfull process and it is not shamefull to need the support of a trained professional. It is a very mature response to grief.
I hope that you also have very supportive family and friends at this time. It makes a huge difference when one is in a lot of pain. Just to have someone to talk to so that the pain feels less.
