Dreft; and Things Just Like It.

SHE DID THE RIGHT THING

YOU EVER HAVE THAT FEELING OF PURE OVERWHELMING PEACE? I HAVE FELT IT EXACTLY THREE TIMES IN MY LIFE:
1) AS I WAS DRIVING IN TO QUIT FOOTLOCKER, WHERE I HAD BEEN FOR 5 YEARS (!), AND BOB'S
"I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW" CAME ON THE RADIO.
2) RIGHT AFTER I WOKE UP, NEXT TO A BOY THAT I WOULD NOT HAVE EXPECTED TO BE WAKING UP WITH (NO, WE DIDN'T, YOU FILTHY MINDED PERSON!), AND JUST BEFORE ONE OF THE BEST KISSES I HAVE EVER HAD.
3) A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO, WHEN ONE OF MY GOOD FRIENDS (WHO IS GOING THROUGH A REALLY ROUGH TIME) MADE A HARD DECISION. IT WAS DIFFICULT, BUT IT WAS RIGHT.
ONE OF MY EARLIER POSTINGS, EVERYBODY HAS TO DIE SOMETIME, RIGHT? , THE FRIEND I AM REFERRING TO IS GIRL D. SHE TOLD THE STORY AS SHE SAW IT. IT MEANT LOSING A FRIEND, AND PROBABLY SOME HARRASSMENT IS TO FOLLOW, BUT IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. SHE DIDN'T ASK FOR THAT FIGHT. SHE DIDN'T ASK FOR THAT CHASE. SHE DIDN'T ASK TO BE THE ONLY WITNESS.
WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, WHEN WE LEAVE THIS WORLD, WE'RE GOING ALONE. NO ONE IS HOLDING YOUR HAND AS YOU WALK THROUGH HEAVEN'S GATES, AND NO ONE WILL HAVE THEIR ARMS AROUND YOU AS YOU WALK INTO THE FIRE. THAT SITUATION IS TOO MUCH TO DEAL WITH. THE MORALITY TWIST ON TRADGEDY. I'VE BEEN FOLLOWING IT ON THE INTERNET, SEEING IF ANY NEW DEVELOPEMENTS ARE BEING RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC. AFTER EVERYTHING GOES TO TRIAL OR IS SETTLED, OR WHAT EVER HAPPENS, I'LL DROP SOME WEB SITES OF WHERE YOU CAN READ THE NEWS COVERAGE. BUT SHE DID THE RIGHT THING. SHE'S IN MY HEART, AND I'M GLAD SHE CHOSE TO RELEASE THIS FROM HERS.
