Sitting in silence and listening to someone who is suffering is a great gift. Even if the listening is to the silence of grief, itself. Telling someone how to feel or what to do is not only futile to the grieving person, it is also often harmful. This little book expresses what many of us survivors feel-we know we will heal in time. We just need those around us to give us the space to do so, and to be willing to watch us flounder as we work our way back into the new life that deep down many of us know exists-we just need time and support to get there.
