Part 1 of the emotional brain Chapter 1 WHY EMOTIONS Only the heart comprehended the true state of affairs, because the most important thing is hidden from the eye. Antoine de Saint-Exupery. The Little Prince Let's remember the last moments of life of Gary and Mary Jane Chaunsi selflessly loved her eleven-year-daughter Andrea, confined to a wheelchair with cerebral palsy. Spouses Chaunsi were among the passengers of the train that crashed into the river "Emtrek" when the barge ran into a support rail bridge over the sleeve in the delta of the river in the state of Louisiana. Thinking only of her daughter, they tried to do everything possible to save Andrea as water rushed through the windows of the car of the train sinking. Somehow, they managed to push the girl through the window, toward the rescuers, but they themselves, not having had time to get out and stayed in the car, pushed into the water.
