Here in the United States, we began to see evidence of the unprecedented challenge to our health care systems and economy and wonder if our democracy would be strong enough to withstand the attacks on our constitution.
Globally our world has been challenged in a way it had not been for over 100 years. An invisible enemy has invaded our privacy, routines, expectations, and hopes. Some of you, like me, have felt mental and emotional uncertainty and unrest. Everything that could be shaken is now shaking, where noise, angry noise, drowns laughter and love.
And yet, a look behind this external emotionally challenging landscape, perhaps peeking through the changing of seasons, lives for some an internal emotional, steady effort to maintain and sustain their lives with a part of them missing. A child.
The courageous conversation we are sharing today demands that you listen with your heart and spirit. It is not designed to entertain; however, it will hopefully educate, empower, and encourage you to know that your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Be inspired by the authenticity of the David Owens family from Chatham, Massachusetts, as they share their story of loss, grief, and hope.
Until next time, remember,
You are not alone.
You are not your circumstances.
You have everything within you to live a purpose-filled life.
