"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."
There is gray sky out my window today. The television blares the news about a suicide bomber in Manchester, England. Ugly. Somewhere in the world a mother is crying. Her daughter is dead. I ask the question all Griefcase subscribers ask: What is wrong with this world? I feel the sinking life-will-never-be-the-same feeling now-that-my-loved-one-is gone, all Griefcase readers feel. The writer with many words has no words for this.
Today I turn to nature to share quotations on peace. I offer a little of this. A little of that. I hope they help to salve our wounds. I urge you to set a clock-timer for ten minutes, pick up your pen, and write something, if only a grocery list. Do it. Just do it.

Mourning Tip: Give yourself permission to mourn. Take however long you need. This is your time. Do it your way.
