“When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions.”
Hamlet, Prince of Denmark Doctor James T. Palmer
It is amazing how clear in my mind are the events that transpired on themorning that I was kidnapped.
My short term memory, I admit, is not as precise as it once was; seems like Iforget a lot these days, but
of the events of the morning I was kidnapped arestamped into my brain as if chiseled.The morning, like all my mornings, was dripping in routine.
