The Shock of that Silence


I’ve been meaning to post a link to this marvellous, sensitive article all week. As a bereaved parent, I relate deeply to the experiences that Alice Jolly describes. I can’t recommend her piece highly enough to anyone. If you’ve lost a child, you’ll hear your own voice in her story. If you’ve never been through that horror and despair (and I pray you never will), you’ll hear a voice much buried. And if you’ve ever lost anyone (who of us hasn’t or won’t?), you’ll hear some salutory words about our society’s problem with grief and the grieving.
