At my job there's an older black lady that works at the front desk. She's very nice, but there's something strange about her..her voice. It always sounds like she has a cold, I didn't ask her was she sick, but the other day my co-worker brought it up to my boss and she told us her story.

Her daughter got a great job out west, and while she was flying out to a new opportunity and new life her plane crashed... when she heard the news of her daughters death she screamed a complete four days. That's just the way she dealt with the grief. She screamed so much she permanently damaged her vocal cords.

What a story I thought...not because of the tragic nature but her there someone that I would be willing to cry out for? Literally feel so much that I would disregard my own body? I don't know.
