THE PEOPLE OF KELM
Once upon a time, in the town of Kelm, suddenly and abrasively, Car Accident arrived. And along with Car Accident came Trauma. Havoc was wreaked, damage was done, and people were hurt. The people of Kelm were shocked and shaken. They didn’t know what had hit them. Unexpectedly their normal, daily lives were disrupted, now filled with pain and unease. Some couldn’t work, some didn’t want to leave the house, most were afraid to drive. They didn’t have words for the dis-ease that they were feeling. What they didn’t know is that when Trauma arrives, so does Anxiety. Anxiety permeates into everything, showing no mercy at all. Anxiety even chased Sleep out of town. With Sleep gone and Anxiety everywhere, the people of Kelm felt out of control. They could not manage even simple tasks anymore. They were jittery and fearful all the time. They began to quarrel with each other (the people of Kelm almost never quarrel). They were forgetful. They couldn’t focus their attention to read! (The people of Kelm have always been avid readers). They didn’t know what to do or how to regain themselves.
Finally the leaders of Kelm got together to find a remedy. Somehow, one of the leaders discovered One Who Knows. One Who Knows understands the difficulties that arise when Car Accident shows up. One Who Knows has ways of calming Anxiety and coaxing Sleep back into town. One Who Knows has done this before, has turned Trauma into a benign memory. Immediately the leaders of Kelm brought One Who Knows to Kelm and had all the people of Kelm gather round. Using a soft tone and soothing words, One Who Knows guided the people of Kelm into a relaxed state. Feeling refreshed and hopeful, the people of Kelm, able to sleep again, continued to work on getting back their selves. And when they were ready, they even waved goodbye as they watched Trauma disappear. Now the people of Kelm are happy and wiser; they have gained a deeper understanding of their unique nature.
