“Wake Me Up When September Ends” by Green Day was my anthem for the month of September beginning September 16th, 2011. That was the day that we lost our son, Ethan, in a tragic car accident on our way to Disney to celebrate his 7th birthday. Every year since the accident, Septembers have been a month that I dreaded. You see, Ethan passed away on September 16th and his birthday was on the 19th. I couldn’t celebrate his life without his death coming first.
