Janet, Drowning Victim

The Great Spirit tells me there is a girl who drowned 27 years ago on Presque Isle named Janet. She wants to tell her parents the following:

I’m really sorry mom and dad. I wasn’t paying attention like I should have been and I know it. I drowned when a big shark came and ate my little toe. I’ve seen you be sad all the time and I didn’t mean to make you sad. I’d never want you to be sad. I hurt you and I didn’t even want to. I’m sorry. I wish I could take it back. I have all this time. I love you and I never wanted to cut time short with you at all, not even once. You were great parents and I should have stayed in the shallow water since I wasn’t a great swimmer. I followed Diego into the deeper water against my own reasoning and conscience. Then I was no more. I got too tired and distracted and a wave came up and submerged me. I got confused which way was up briefly and I wasn’t holding any breath in my lungs and then suddenly they were full of water. Please don’t blame yourselves anymore. I knew better, I really did, but I wanted to follow him anyway.

Janet’s apology

R.I.P. Jane
