Samai and her husband were blessed with three sons and two daughters. Her two daughters were well married; Samai was in good health; her needs were met; and life went along smoothly.
That was before tragedy struck and her world spiraled out of control. What little peace she held was stripped from her grasp.
Tragedy’s Devastating Blow
One evening, the family received devastating news that Samai’s eldest son had been killed instantly in an accident. The loss left the family reeling in deep grief.
Then, a few years later, when a conflict escalated, someone poisoned Samai’s second son’s food, killing him. Once again, the family was thrown into shock and mourning. Their lives, previously uneventful, were suddenly upended by the reality of death and their lack of control in life.
For Samai’s husband, the loss was too great. He could not bear the turmoil. Finding no answers for the family’s anguish and no hope for peace in midst of the chaos, he decided to take his own life.
Samai, now a 65-year-old widow was left behind to recommence the grieving process. When would it end?
