Ghosts are real. This much I know. There are things that tie them to a place, very much like they do to us. Some remain tethered to a patch of land, a time and date, the spilling of blood, a terrible crime. There are others…others that hold onto an emotion, a drive, loss, revenge, or love. Those…they never go away.
