A few years ago, an author named Gillian Flynn wrote a book titled Gone Girl. It was eventually turned into a motion picture focusing on an unhappily married couple that disliked each other.

I recently spoke to a distraught mother from Oklahoma named Maggie Zingman. She is haunted by the death of Brittany Phillips, her only daughter. I assume that people think she should “move on” with her life. After speaking to so many people with murdered loved ones, it’s a common theme. But unless someone has experienced the murder of a loved one, it’s impossible to understand the grief. And the pain is even worse when the victim is a son or daughter. When people die, we never “get over it,” we just “deal with it.”
