15. ONe unnecessary sentence in the narration really ticked me OFF!
As said about Bobby's grief, and wearing his brother's jacket....

"...... cultivating his grief.."

Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez, how COLD. When are we as a nation ever going to learn that grief is necessary, it's HUMAN, and experiencing it and going through it is not only part of life, but a necessity to growth??!!!!

As it turned out, experiencing his grief led him to a deeper compassion for others. Yet, he is criticised for that....??? What in the world are we about?

"The word 'compassion' means to 'feel with'. We are unable to feel with another, if we don't know how to feel our own emotions." Rev. Richard Rohr, S.J.
