When I think of September 11, 2001, my heart goes out to those who are grieving losses from that day.
But at the same time my thoughts are for everyone who are grieving the death of a loved one regardless when that passing occured. Also my thoughts are for those who are grieving the loss of a pet.
Grief is a universal emotion that knows no national or cultural boundaries.
But let us all honor our loved ones who are physically no longer with us by affirming life.
