Death is an obvious loss that needs to be grieved. There are also many other losses we as people experience that need to be grieved. As for the old saying ‘time heals everything’ … not true. Time and proper grieving will change the depth of the hurt, but some losses one never ‘gets over’ … they will always be woven into the tapestry of the person’s life.
If ‘time heals everything’ then the disturbed man that shot the innocent girls in the Amish School shouldn’t have been tormented with stuff from 9 or 20 years ago.
