Just thinking of the Fort Hood shooting yesterday and how horrendous the shock and emotion is for those connected to it, whether right in the middle of the shooting or family and friends.

No matter what the grief, don’t try to push people to ignore it, and don’t ignore it yourself. You don’t have to get rid of it, or hide it. Let it exist. Just sit with them, hold their hand. Grieve with them.

“While grief is fresh, every attempt to divert it only irritates.” – Samuel Johnson, 1709-1784, English author and lexicographer
