Turning tragedy, grief into a positive outcome

Parkersburg News and Sentinel

What defines us as human beings is not what happens to us in life, but how we react. Can we take an event that is inherently tragic and devastating to us, and turn that event into a positive outcome in the face of adversity, pain, and grief? No parent should ever have to know the heartache and pain of having to bury a child. Yet we know this happens around the world every day. Whether to war, or famine, or disease, or accident, children die every day, and parents around the world face the ultimate grief of saying goodbye to a child.
