Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. —Matthew 5:4

Grief remains one of the few things that has the power to silence us. It is a whisper in the world and a clamor within. More than sex, more than faith, even more than its usher death, grief is unspoken, publicly ignored except for those moments at the funeral that are over too quickly, or the conversations among the cognoscenti, those of us who recognize in one another a kindred chasm deep in the center of who we are.  —Anna Quindlen, The Living Are Defined By Whom They Have Lost

Let me give voice to my own truth and let me find the ones who will listen and understand. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
