It comes and goes, but I get angry at God, I have moments where I just say, "Why?" You know, "What did we do?"—"What could we have done differently?"—or—"Why wasn't my son one of them that, that recovered?"—"Why am I the strong one?"—"Why isn't there at least one other person in the family that can help?" You know, why does it all fall on me? But then, I've got so many blessings too. So I mean it, yes, absolutely, I still get angry. I don't think I would be human if I didn't get angry, or I don't think I would be being honest with the situation or myself if I didn't say, "I'm angry!" You know, I, it's healthy to be angry. I think we always as a family say, "we're angry at the situation," and I think that's a healthy way to look at it. I'm not angry at the person who had the piece of wood that fell off the trailer, I'm angry at the situation, and I think that's the way all of us get through it, and I that's a healthy way to look at it, because then you're free to get rid of it, and to really get angry, you know, without causing guilt.
