“Spending time on the pediatric cancer ward

among dead and dying children

will make you question just about everything you’ve ever held to be true,” she  said.

Especially long-cherished beliefs about control;

the ability to choose correctly and thus guarantee a good outcome for your life.

This sense of powerlessness

not the delicious, tingly vampire-novel chills, or the kind of sexy-scared way we feel when we’re falling in love —

but naked, raw What-is-the-Meaning-of-Life anguish,

is at the heart of terror for me.”
