Two stories that I would like to write

They both came from news media over the past week.

The first was in the Sunday Independent, concerning old age. They mentioned a woman who was turning 100, in some region of France where there are lots of old people. The woman said she was sad that she had outlived all her relatives. Later on the article mentioned that she had lost her only child in its first year.

The other story comes from the Baby Jordan murder trial. The youngest member of the assasination team described how he was told to take the baby to another room and kill it. He said in court that he he couldn’t do it and played with it instead because it smiled at him and reminded him of how he used to look after his baby brother.
