"Please join us this Sunday, December 14 for the Worldwide Candle Lighting in memory of all children gone too soon. For full information including services around the globe, visit The Compassionate Friends. If there is not a service near you, or you would rather not attend a service, just light a candle for an hour wherever you are with friends, family, or in quiet solitude."
Seeing these kinds of messages show up in my social media feeds is very affirming. I have felt that people are sick and tired of being faced with my grief. This year I've come to the realization that their issues are their issues. I plan to grieve out loud as long as I need to. It's my journey. I own it.
