Think back for a minute ... for some of us there are more of those available minutes to remember than others BUT ... think about when you were a child and you were afraid, truly afraid. I vividly remember the evening we received a late night phone call and my mother's brother had had a massive heart attack in another city, and the prognosis looked grim. It was doubtful my mother would arrive in time to get to see him again. Obviously, she was a hysterical mess and being only 9 years old, I was as well. I just wanted to hide in a closet because I was so scared. I didn't understand exactly what was going on, only that there was chaos all around and I felt anxiety and fear. I remember it as if it were yesterday.
