But, I know the particular date that she died — March 30th, 2014 — which is a date-certain that many people don’t have. Having a date-certain makes the necessary grieving less difficult for me than those loved ones who don’t have a date-certain. My heart will always break for those who loved our POWs & MIAs in Vietnam. They never knew when their loved ones met their end, which made their grieving far, far more difficult.
I attended a lecture last week on driver-less cars. They discussed LIDAR, which is the image-capturing radar on the roof of driver-less cars. It will take high-resolution photographs 360-degrees around a driver-less car, up to 100 meters or about 300 feet. It can spot a squirrel sitting in a tree. Anything showing through any open window, anybody going in or out of any building, anybody driving by, or anybody in the area for any reason will be captured forever.
Afterwards, I brought up the issue of privacy and was told “Privacy is already dead. Don’t be silly, hoping that you will ever again have any privacy. Just get over it — let it go!”
Maybe, that was the date-certain that I needed — April 29th, 2015.
Maybe, it is past-time to begin that grieving process.
