Everywhere I look I see people are dieing around us everyday. You don’t notice it because it doesn’t involve you. But what if one day it does?
Stephen Foster Elementary School teacher killed in collision on Interstate 95
Monday, March 9th a school teacher by the name of Sharon Braun was killed on the I95. She wasn’t only a school teacher though, she was a mother, a grandmother and a friend to many people. She was hit by a semitrailer truck, her car flipped and she was pronounced dead on the scene. Her 4 grandchildren with her, only suffering minor bruises. This will be something her grandchildren will have to suffer through, something they will never forget. The tragic day they lost their grandmother. You can read more on the story Here. How do you go on to live through such a memory? A memory that will remain in your mind forever.
Family and Friends will go through a stage called “The Grieving Stage”. After loosing someone you love, you can go through up and downs. Different emotions that you don’t know what to do with. You may feel shock, anger and guilt. All of these feelings are normal. Some stay in denial at first, not wanting to believe that the person they love is gone. Angry that the world has taken them away. Or guilty, because maybe you could have done something, or said something to prevent this from happening. Sometimes you may even feel like the sadness inside you won’t go away. I promise you it will at least get better with time.
It’s not Easy, but you Can Do it!
Life is hard, having to go through these feelings. Feelings you don’t understand, and don’t want to understand. This is normal to feel this way when you have gone through a loss. You have to accept these feelings as part of your grieving stage. Once you have accepted your feelings, you can learn to live with them and surpass them. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, but there are healthy ways to cope with the pain. You can get through it though, we all do.
If you learn from your suffering, and really come to understand the lesson you were taught, you might be able to help someone else
who’s now in the phase you may have just completed. Maybe that’s what it’s all about after all… ~Anonymous
