Everyone in the U.S. and around the world probably remembers the exact circumstances of when they heard of the tragedy that happened on 9/11. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 15 years already. At times, it still feels like it just recently happened. The September 11 attacks killed 2,977 people and injured more than 6,000 others. It’s comforting to know that the U.S. and the rest of the world can take some time each year to remember each individual person. Every person counts. I came across this online collection at www.JourneyOfHearts.org
I hope it’s helpful to you:
Grief is the most patient and persistent of all of life’s companions.
It is an ancient, universal power that links all human beings together.
Words can provide a source of solace, hope, comfort and reassurance–emotions much needed during the grieving process. Words, in whatever form, help us to realize that we are not alone in our feelings of grief or desolation. Words–written or spoken is a powerful way of dealing with grief that has been utilized since ancient times. Often the written words can often be more effective than spoken condolences at touching the part of a person’s heart which is grieving.
These collected quotes, some written centuries ago, some by experts in the field, some by those who have experienced loss & grief and survived are arranged in a specific sequence. The quotes are arranged starting with the grief response to loss, then entering the transition phase before reaching quotes on healing.
