Every Wednesday

Every Wednesday I will post something about grief. Sometimes it will be a reflection on an aspect of grief’s landscape. Now and then I will share from my own journey of grief, because in the sharing of our stories we find strength and build a community of people that support one another.

Nights of Remembrance

On Oct. 31, Nov. 1 and Nov. 2, many of us took time to remember and honor our loved ones who had died.

We celebrated their love, humor, and compassion, and gave thanks for their continued presence in our lives. On these nights, people around the world lit candles and held them up in defiance of death.

We held our candles high, for the darkness shall not overcome our lights.
