Book: We Need To Talk About Grief, Annie Broadbent
An ending chapter notes the consistencies in the grieving as well as the contradictions. We understand why the grief of a wife is different that the grief of her husband’s parents, and different from the grief of his siblings, children, and best friend. They all grieve, just in different ways. I appreciated specific examples like the rabbi singing a lament that helped those who had not yet grieved to do so. This affirms that a community also grieves each death.
