I am somewhat preoccupied about the dad who threw his daughter to her death off our Westgate Bridge. He has been found guilty of the crime. I mentioned about how finally the mother broke down in court to R, and he said, too horrible to talk about.
R is right. There is nothing to say. It is just too awful.
Today I read of Spanish police charging the parents of committing a crime because their daughter died from a lack of nutrition. Good that they were charged.
If you have a dog, you know how they implicitly trust you. Gawd, you can even beat them and they will still love you. The human, the pack leader, is never wrong.
And so it goes for the parents of a young child. The parents are never wrong in the child's eyes. As Darcy looked into her father's eyes for the last time, she could have never imagine what he was about to do. She did not cry out on the way down. There was no reason to. As she sailed downwards, she still trusted her father. Maybe it is a good thing that she never learnt anything different.
