Life on Earth can offer you many stories, millions and millions of them, all with different beginnings, middles, and endings. Some would make you laugh, others would baffle you. Some would fill you with happiness and love, while others would make your heart hurt while tears run down your face. There are so many stories you could take part of, if you just stopped long enough to listen.
This is one of those stories that you should stop and listen to. The story of Matthew and Aiden Henderson.
Losing not only one parent, but both, in a tragic car crash one devastating October night has a horrendous impact on your life. Whatever view of life you might have had, will be shattered. Like the remnants of a broken mirror that will only cut you if you try to fix it.
What was once certain becomes uncertain. What was once your home, your safe haven, becomes nothing but a box filled with painful memories. A life altering experience it is indeed, and it will without question change the course of your future.
As for Matthew and Aiden, their reactions were probably a little bit different than what many others would have been, and a rather peculiar affair for everyone involved.
The loss of their parents left them on the outskirts of society. In the blink of an eye, the flip of a car, it was suddenly just the two of them.
And it always would be.
