A message from Jan McDaniel
Grieving is a process that comes after a broken heart. Much like walking through an overgrown garden or a neglected or unworn trail, the journey can be challenging. It can feel impossible to see anything better ahead. The pain is overwhelming.
Grieving can be long. It can be part of a personal history or affect the lives of nations. In humanity, we have grieved together and apart for significant loss, for injustice, for understanding that seems forever hidden.
But we stand only on one spot at any given time. We hold onto hope that what we do will make a difference in the future. And it does. The lives of those we lost continue to have meaning. They keep the path lit.
Hold on to hope.

Way for Hope
Losing someone you love is difficult, but it can mean a lot to hear from others traveling similar paths.
