Grief and Trauma


"Bad things happen to good people just about as often as they happen to bad people. In the natural order of the world, suffering is random. The magic power that comes with our humanity is not a shield protecting us from misfortune, but an inner strength that helps us deal with it, overcome it, and learn from it so we can still find love, laughter and joy despite it."

Michael Josephson, “Character Counts”, Josephson Institute
