41. Exactly. Or, maybe she did know...shock can make people react strangely.

Some years ago, my daughter was walking home from school with a neighbor. When she came in, 30 minutes later than usual, she had an odd look on her face. If I had to define it, it would be a dazed pasted on smile.

It took several minutes for her to tell me why. Her friend had been struck by a car on the walk home. She watched her fly through the air about 30 feet "in slow motion".

After she was able to verbalize that, she was inconsolable. She cried for hours.

I don't judge people for what they do in times of stress.

(The friend sustained a broken ankle; but was otherwise ok.)
