Chapters 387, 388, 389, 390, 391, 392, 393, 394, 395, 396, 397, 398, 399 : Death

Happy Wednesday! 

I know I just posted something a few minutes ago, but I really wanted to talk about something that happened to me today.

Today, my dad called me and informed that a close family friend had died. Technically, it was my “uncle’s” (he’s not related to me) mother. Even though they weren’t related, I did grow up knowing this person and spending time with her and her family. It was devastating to hear, and I can’t imagine how her family feels. Her grandsons are like brothers to me, and it pains me to hear their voices and hearing them sound so upset.

I want to comfort them in any way I can, but there’s only so much I can do to help. I wish I could physically care for them, but I’m stuck at school. I’m really at a loss for what to do…how do you deal with death, even if you know it’s inevitable. How do you help those who are affected, and how can you help them through this tough time?

What does death mean to you, and how do you cope with it?

Love you all!

Chapter 74: First Day Home

Happy Friday!

Today’s post will be shorter, due to the sad topic. If you live in the US, you’ve most likely heard about the school shooting that took place in Connecticut…which is where I’m from. I’m only a few towns over from where the shooting took place, and already there are a ton of security standards being put in place.

It’s extremely sad that this horrific event happened, especially because there were fatalities, including several children. It just makes me sad to know that those families will never be the same again.
