It seems as though someone who writes for this Belgian TV show has lost a child. The main charactor, Jasper Teerlinck, says some of the most accurate things I have heard anywhere. Since he has mental issues of some kind, he delivers them without showing any emotion, so I do not seep into a puddle. I learn without an extrodinary amount of pain. It feels like home.
“Are you familiar with the concept of the bayonet thrust?
Soldiers used to be trained to thrust the bayonet, turn it and rip the flesh out. The wound would never heal, no matter how many doctors treated it.
Losing a child is like a bayonet wound. It never heals.”
