She never complains, or wears her illness like a badge. History is repeating itself, bringing back similar, painful memories from years ago. What do you do Well in reality there is nothing you can do, except care and love. Do you ask your God for help Why do bad things happen to good people David writes about his feelings of loss, desolation, and impending loss, sometimes using explicit language.
