How time feels like it moves so slowly and yet is gone so quickly.
To Go or Not Go, That is the Dilemma
For anyone who’s lost a child, it is nearly impossible to fathom that life moves forward. It’s not plausible that daily routines and events can continue on without our son or daughter. But the world does move forward; it does continue on and inevitably we are faced with moving with it.

I never quite knew why women would wail after a death of a loved one. It’s a cultural difference and/or a religious difference, I always thought. But now I understand. It's a physical response to grief.

What If We Knew
Is it better to not know about a deadly disease and die having lived a happy life or to know about it and be able to have hope for survival?
What Is Selfish When You Are Grieving?
Do I have a new code of moral ethics that rationalizes selfishness for my survival?
