What is left after?

What happens to survivors of tragedies? I was the only one seriously injured in my accident – what about the other people, I have often wondered. The man who admitted the momentary distraction arguing with his teenager that caused it. The other woman, innocently driving and having my car flung into hers.

So what about epic tragedies of death and survival in furiously forbidding circumstances? The guilt of being one of the few, the relief, the memories…
