There is a game that was just released called “That Dragon, Cancer.” It was developed by a man who lost his son to cancer after a long, long battle. The trailer (posted below) makes me want to run away and not think about it again, but at the same time that makes me feel small and weak and not just a little mean. It is sort of like the fact that since my kids are healthy I want to run away from even thinking a reality where that isn’t the case.
But I want to play this game. I want to walk through it and feel through it and maybe in some way understand just a little more about the stories that we all share in this world. I haven’t been following the story, and have only just found the game here at its release, so I’m not sure of their whole story, but they seem to be people who are trying to follow God in the middle of tragedy. Anyway, I want to go and give myself to this game for a while. I just don’t know if I have the courage to do it.
