Weekly Challenge 267: Ocean

The news hit me hard, like an a large wave from the ocean washing over me. A family member
informed me that earlier in the day, right after deleting her Facebook page, my cousin committed suicide
by overdosing on pills. She had just become a grandmother, and was so proud of both her daughter
and new granddaughter.  There were indications of depression, but if I could only have understood the
depth of her pain,  what she was thinking in her final moments.  I wish she knew her life had more
meaning than just a drop of water in the ocean.
