Not being maximally risk-averse is sensible. But when the worst happens, we must find a way to live with the knowledge that we didn’t do all we could. No parent is immune from this.
At both the beginning and end of life, everything else fades into the background as the focus turns to what matters most.
These transitions are wistful and a little frightening. But after the year we’ve had, I greet them with reverence and wonder.
You are not crazy, nor are you alone. There are tons of us out here who have felt the same way you do. This is the opposite of what the pro-abortion lobby will tell you, but it’s true.
I am a fan of many of the celebrities who died, but it did seem a little over the top to say 2016 was worse than any other year. Then November 11 came.
Not all books are meant to be faithfully adapted to screens, and the movie adaptation of ‘A Monster Calls’ would have been well-served to avoid it.

Why do we raise awareness about pregnancy and infant loss? Because once people know the truth, they can love others who are suffering.
These losses are common, but it can be hard to know what to say or not to say when a friend or family member experiences a miscarriage or infant death.

It seems logical for a person grieving a miscarriage to turn in hate towards those who choose to abort their unborn children. While this danger exists, reality is much more interesting.
There was my beautiful daughter on the screen, but next to her was the sac where here twin sibling had died. My great joy became intermingled with sorrow.
We’re a culture that is strong on the easy act of praise but weak on the hard work of encouragement. Human beings need more than that.
Our town’s commemoration of the Orlando terrorist attacks was well-attended, self-congratulatory, even festive. Its memorial for slain police officers was sparse and ambivalent.
Just as their mother was famous for championing causes society deemed taboo, Princess Diana’s kids William and Harry have made mental health a centerpoint of their outreach efforts.
Death is similar to birth in that, as commonplace as it is, it is one of the most significant things any of us has to go through, and each time it happens is different from every other time.
Gustav Mahler’s Tenth Symphony is about death, and acceptance. It released me from the memory of a day at Auschwitz.
