MACBETH: Act V, Scene 5:
How do we make sense of a 2 1/2 year old child losing his life? How can we begin to comprehend the excruciating pain which the parents of this little soul must be feeling? How will these parents ever get on with their lives?
A little boy, just 2 1/2 years old, gets dressed to go outside and play. His parents look out the windows, see he’s ok and continue on with what they are doing…perhaps cleaning the kitchen, making a meal or just simply talking. Their little angel wanders off…and then FATE decides that it’s little Chase’s time to leave this world. This little soul, with his whole life in front of him, drowns in a creek just a half a km from home. Why now? Why Chase?
Was Chase chosen by FATE to be a lesson for all of us? To look at Chase and see our own children in him? To see how quickly life can be taken away from us? Is this how the Universe teaches us important lessons? Why must his life be taken in order for us to wake up to this oh so brief candle called life? Why must his parents go through this horrible pain, a pain which they will carry with them throughout the remainder of their lives?
