In lieu of many things going on in my life, and in the lives of many others who may be struggling, I decided to share this article.
After the mass murders and shootings that have occurred in recent times, as well as losing loved ones due to long-term illnesses or suicide, I found this piece to be a glimpse of hope for those of us unable to currently see it.
This has helped me, and I hope, it can help you as well.
It is no accident that families who experience the sudden, violent loss of a loved one make a powerful commitment to fight the waste of life. Once one has touched the dark side of the moon, the power and vibrancy of life takes on a new meaning — it is not just having a life, it is being truly alive.- Ditta M. Oliker
