Thank you, Henry.

I can thank the question format on Quora for prompting this. The question was so stark and so free of any context, I could only imagine that somebody was suffering badly.

That prompted me to reach inside and try to pull something out that would resonate with the person who asked the question.

I don’t know if it helped, but I hope it did.
