A year ago, I was moved to write this piece following the Uvalde school shooting. Whenever something of this nature occurs, I remind myself of five truths I’ve learned about life after death that give me comfort, especially when children have died. I wrote this thinking about the family members and friends whose lives would never be the same, yet not knowing how to share this with them, I placed what I’d written in a drawer. I recently came across it, so I thought I’d share it with you.
If you’re anything like me, contemplating what occurred in Texas on May 24th (2022) is utterly incomprehensible. The death toll numbers are similar to those of Sandy Hook nearly a decade ago. Although I can’t possibly make sense of this heartbreaking and unconscionable event, I do have a few insights that might help you manage some of the emotions you may be feeling in response to it. I call them my five truths.
