Burden of Time

When the avalanche of sand buried our bodies, my father found me within minutes, but it took a rescue team of over 100 working for 24 hours before they found my brother's lifeless body. Even though I was only 3 years old at the time, I burdened myself with guilt of his death, I couldn't rid myself of the belief that I took up too much of my father's time to be found. Like a broken record, I've been haunted by the message, "You used too much time" for most of my adult life.
