Grief is something we all go through. Grief is a normal reaction to the loss of things or people we are attached to. Grief is heart-wrenching and can feel like the world is ending, again and again; the fact that grief is normal does not make it any easier to go through. While no two individuals grieve in the same way, we all grieve.

The Coronavirus restrictions imposed in the world this past year resulted in the loss of what granted us comfort, safety and well-being. In addition to our personal losses, we are now all, in one way or another, globally grieving.
