The Trauma and Its Effects

Millicent expressed how this tragedy caused significant trauma for her. She confessed, “The first couple of years as a child, I don’t remember them at all. The only memories I have are of me in my 20s. Now that we are older, we have so many questions that are unanswered.”

She also shared her fears about her own mortality and the future of her children. “I remember having so much fear at 25. I was like, I’m going to die at 26. In my head, that’s when life ends. The same thing with my children, when my children turned four. I was like, they are not going to have a mother.”
