Through Tragedy

Through TragedyThere’s no simple or easy way to move through unexpected tragedy. It’s a process. It raises existential questions and intense emotions, even when we’re not directly impacted by events. Vicariously, we are all impacted, whether we stop and allow it to sink in or not. There are implications for our world and our sense of safety. Traumatic events can evoke a wide range of emotions from fear and numbness to anger. Since everyone’s reaction is different, based on life history, current circumstances and proximity to the tragedy, I wanted to share some resources, hoping one might fit for you or someone you know.
