Yesterday on cnn.com there was a report about John Travolta and the loss of his sixteen year old son. That story inspired other parents to tell their stories of the loss of a child. Reading through them is sad, however in this stage of grief for me I actually found it comforting that there are other people in this world experiencing what I am experiencing. It makes grief a less lonely place to know that others are struggling, remembering, and holding on to the exact same pain. Even though the losses happened in different ways the feeling of loss is the same. One comment on the page said something like “A child who looses its parents is called an orphan, a woman who looses her husband is called a widow but there is no word for a woman who looses her child because words can’t describe the pain… “ Words don’t do it justice, it’s true, but there is comfort in knowing that someone somewhere understands.
