“The paradox of grief is that while it can be overwhelming, it is, in the end a gift. Gift? Yes. Grief is how you heal a broken heart. And if you deny it or hide it or try to duck it, you only delay it.

“The writer, Annie Dillard said, ‘Pain is a terrible thing to waste.’ As you work through your pain you will see that you have the power to transform it and use your hard-earned wisdom and insight to help someone else.”

Laura Palmer | Author of Shrapnel in the Heart
Presented at the SDIT gathering in Washington D.C. in 1992


“A broken heart is an honorable condition. Don’t fear it.”
