This short story also reveals lessons to be learned. Death is not the end. As with Chris, the pain he suffered while alive does not need to be continued in death. Time does heal all wounds, but not until the person is ready to be healed. He is surrounded by those wanting to love him, but after experiencing a life of neglect, he does not know how to accept it.
This story also reveals the purity of childhood. The eyes of a child are capable of seeing love and joy in everyone. Choices aren’t hindered or swayed by a common consensus. His honesty and naturally loving nature are like a magnet drawing others into his halo of happiness.
Burdens of life experienced by adults can remain with the living, but why should it? Why does a person need to wait until death before being able to experience unburdened joy and happiness? A person should strive to learn these lessons now, while still living, so she can share her happiness with loved ones.
Jessica Marie Baumgartner’s short story Headstones transports the reader to a graveyard. Sal has existed in the graveyard for ninety years and she guides new spirits during their transition. A young spirit arrives and she is determined to assist him on his journey. Headstones is well-written with many emotional twists and turns. This original and touching character-driven read does not disappoint.
