Great piece Sapir! I know I can definitely get carried away with imagining the worst sometimes. The thing is that even if the worst has happened, what are you going to do about it? Especially if you’ve received no information and can’t get any, all you can do is wait anyway.
It’s really no use freaking out until someone says “hey, it’s time to freak out.”
I mean I wonder how people back in the day dealt with it when there were barely any forms of communication? How many weeks between letters before they worried? 😂
Thanks for sharing this piece, it really got me thinking!
