    The 'get over it' people make me barfy.
    People push and push for speedy healing and it just doesn't work like that.

    And, I am so sorry to hear that, MM.
    Losing a child is something I can't even wrap my mind around.

    There's also no such thing as "closure".

    Never was, never will be.

    And there aren't any tears in heaven in the first place. It's a joyful and peaceful existence. We all should share in that wonderfulness, eventually. (my belief anyway)

    Exactly, Finn. Kids do this all the time. They will run up against a wall, look this way and that, and then run off again. He had probably done this many times, and since it was a wall of glass that had never been open before, he just did not realize it was open until it was too late.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your son, MM. Some friends of mine lost their little boy in 1999. They too survived. I do not know how any parent can go on after the death of their child, but I have every respect for those who have the strength of character to move on.

    One thing I couldn't grasp is why Conor ran out of the window. I don't have any children yet, so maybe you parents can give me some insight but wouldn't a 4 1/2 year old know what a window is and not jump out of it? Conor must have been aware that he lived in a high rise building. The only scenario that I could imagine is that he was running/playing and accidentially fell out of the window as opposed to running out of the window. Just a senseless tragedy
    I read that he would run to the ledge & jump up on it to sit & look out. I personally wouldn't allow that b/c just the thought of being so close to the edge like that would make me vomit in my mouth. I agree that there should have been bars; windows break, glass fractures, things happen.

    Most people don't look for danger in every single situation like I do. I am warped, I admit. It's the OCD, I can't help it.

    Nothing wrong with that, RaRa. I find that the older I get, the more aware of my mortalty. So, I'm "afraid" of anything anymore. <sigh>

    Oh, well it still seems a bit strange to run into a wall whether there was glass or not. But I guess children just like to run into things. I always though it was a window since thats what most articles I read on this say it was?!?!? Thanks for clearing that up. I don't know, I would freak out if I lived in a top floor with a glass wall and a 4 year old. I would definitely not allow my kids to run into it or would just have it covered. I'm paranoid, I guess. I take so many precautions with my nieces and nephews. Granted that sometimes things happen no matter how much precaution you take. I still find it a bit bizarre though. Nevertheless, he was a beautiful little angel and may he rest in peace.

    I am there with you on those last 3 sentences. I get on my own last nerve with it.

    It's funny though, looking at photos of Conor, I never ever get a "tragic" vibe....just the sense of a happy little spirit. Anyone else?

    Don't know if this has been posted before, but here's a picture from the scene. You can clearly see Conor's body and the police examining him.

    This was terrible, tragic ending for such a young soul. I can't even listen to 'Tears in Heaven' as you can still hear the raw pain in Eric's voice as he sings it, it's heart wrenching. RIP little man.
