Have you ever regretted something seemingly so simple, which could have changed the whole course of your life?
I am generally a person who has no regrets.

But I regret and regret so much about a certain day in April 2004.
Back when I was 13 or something.

I was sleeping in our house in Halkidiki, in the caravan. My sister (6 years old at the time) comes and says “will you get up to play?”
I didn’t get up either because I love sleep. I told her “go away, I’m sleeping”. The night before we had also fought over some stupid things and in the morning I told her this, teenage girl.

And I was late getting up. In the meantime, she asked for permission to go outside the property to play as usual in the sand on the dirt road with the beach buckets.

And I get up to help with the chores. I get a brush to paint some wood we had. I turn to look at the exit of the estate and a truck with the bands comes.
I know my sister is very afraid of cars. So I just say a “Danae be careful” that was not heard and I turn in front of me and do two brushes.
And then the chaos.

Crickets everywhere. I go to the exit with my forgiven grandmother and tell her what happened? Did a snake bite the driver? Did a snake bite the little girl?
We say nothing and run.

The truck had hit the little girl. Instant death we were told.

I will not describe the scenes of “infinite beauty” that my eyes saw.
Not the reactions of my parents, not the bloody clothes my mother wore into the evening. Not even that this was the second child she was losing…
All I will say is how much I regret 4/17/04. That I didn’t get up to play.

Where I kicked her out to sleep.
Take care of your loved ones.
Our lives are our people, not careers or money.
