In Unknown Pieces, Dana shares her confusion as to why good people are removed for not following the rules in her town.
DANA: Like so many others he was a good person. Never caused one trouble. Loved his family. Did his job fair and square. Why him? I’ll never know…same with so many other decent people we’ve lost that we’ve either known or heard about, including your husband… They were all law-abiding citizens. They followed all the rules. They weren’t supposed to be taken from us. It’s one thing to try and accept how our ambitions get lowered, but to bring the ceiling so far down on someone and crush them entirely? I’ll never get my head around that. It’s beyond me. I guess it’s true when they say that all spirits need to stretch out their wings or else they’re dead anyway. Being alive without truly living. Ever feel that way? I feel that way..constantly. It’s the knowing of something wrong and knowing those unknown pieces will never get found.
