If only they could speak to us from the darkness

"In nature, the most violent passions are silent; in Tragedy, 
they must speak, and they speak with dignity too. " 
___ Lord Chesterfield, 1752

No tragedy speaks more clearly than untimely death – or an unexplained one. Violence against a person who lives by the sword is understandable, but when a life is taken without reason, without rhyme, without context, it makes us all shake our heads and ask the question "why." But seldom do we find the answer. We call out, out into the darkness, hoping that someone or something speaks to us. The lack of an answer is particularly unsettling as we wander in the darkness.
