Over the years, I have shed many tears responding to the pain in life. It comes naturally to me. I have sixty-five years of feeling and crying. I feel so much that my mother used to call me Sarah Bernhardt after the dramatic French film actress. Now as an adult, I am grateful I feel so much. I believe one of the reasons our society is so easy to lash out is due to our inability to feel, to cry. Feeling is normal.
