I have been wanting to write you and correct some of what I had said to you or rather to put it in another way.
I am so sorry that your young life to this point has been one of such difficulty. I don't know what the problem has been so I am flying blind here. I do know that in the world of today that the young are having a difficult time of it, the world goes so fast and its hard even for us that are older, too.
The main thing I wanted to say to you is that don't think that it was your fault but that if you would look at it as a charactor builder, it might be alot easier for you.
I read your message many times and I am amazed at the command of your language and what you are getting out of Buddhism.
Already at a early age, you had that taste of death and realized some important issues that many of us never get.
Just be kind to yourself and try and not get personally or emotionally involved with your life issues at the moment. You are going to be quite something in a fews years after you get this Buddhist thing down.
I just wanted to let know that I and the rest of you are holding you in prayer and good thoughts.
