The weight of the grief at first was so unbearable, I was sure i couldn’t survive. I never knew emotional pain inspired so much physical hurt. And this statue expresses that so well. Grief, like love, inspires beautiful and meaningful art.
It hurts all year, some months more than others, but July is our month of acknowledgement and our opportunity to educate.
I’m going to post here a few of the hundreds of grief posts from this site. I literally wrote my way through the grief process and still do. I will be doing things throughout the month in honor of the children we lost. It’s my hope we can help others to understand what helpful and what’s not.
