When I was working in hospice, our bereavement counselor would offer the book, When Bad Things Happen to Good People to our hospice families. I have read the book and it helped me cope with the grief that weighed heavy on my heart over the loss of my three sisters-in-law, Lora, Marcia and Cindy. I love his quote, “Caring about others, running the risk of feeling, and leaving an impact on people, brings happiness.”
Here’s a short synopsis on the book: When Harold Kushner’s three-year-old son was diagnosed with a degenerative disease that meant the boy would only live until his early teens, he was faced with one of life’s most difficult questions: Why, God? Years later, Rabbi Kushner wrote this straightforward, elegant contemplation of the doubts and fears that arise when tragedy strikes. In these pages, Kushner shares his wisdom as a rabbi, a parent, a reader, and a human being. Often imitated but never superseded, When Bad Things Happen to Good People is a classic that offers clear thinking and consolation in times of sorrow. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Kushner
If you’re trying to make sense out of a tragedy, I would recommend this book.
We can never lose HOPE………
