I have felt angry and for years I pushed it down.  And, I remember one day I was driving in the car minding my own business, not really thinking of anything, and all the sudden I was filled with such rage for what had happened.  I didn’t know what to do because I had never experienced anything like this.  And, I remember screaming, and crying, and pulling over to the side of the road, and stopping, wailing, which is something I do not do.  Eventually, I calmed down, and I felt a lot better.  I felt like whatever had been building up and building up had escaped.  But, it didn’t happen for a long time.  It took probably three years when I—I guess what happened was I knew that she was okay, and all the sudden I was filled up with this sense of, “Why did it all have to happen? And why did we have to go through everything we went through?”
