"I believe that man will not merely endure; he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among the creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of kindness and compassion."
Dear TSJ Family:
There are some extraordinary works here as always. Every time I read the new works (and often to existing ones as well) I am again put in a place of deeper understanding. We all share this thing called grief. Whether a death is expected or sudden, we can be put in a state of shock or disbelief. Some recover and move on-some never do and walk through life as if through a gauze curtain. We are never as prepared as we think we are.
What is TSJ's role in this whole grief "thing"? In one sense it's whatever the reader or writer needs or wants it to be. Some tell me it's cathartic to know others share their feelings. Others say that it helps them work through some expression of these feelings. Still others want to pay homage to someone, some thing or some place once present-now lost.
I am proud and pleased to play some small role in presenting these outpourings to a wider audience.
