It's Always Darkest Before The Dawn: A Story of Hope

“If I can throw a single ray of light across the darkened pathway of another;
if I can aid some soul to clearer sight of life and duty, and thus bless my brother;
if I can wipe from any human cheek a tear,
I shall not have lived my life in vain while here.

If I can guide some erring one to truth, inspire within his heart a sense of duty;
if I can plant within my soul of rosy youth a sense of right, a love of truth and beauty;
if I can teach one man that God and heaven are near,
I shall not then have lived in vain while here…”

How important is the grief process?  You have survived a trauma – a brain injury, a death, some type of loss that has drastically altered life for you and everyone around you.  Everything changes…
