Grief Surrounds Us: It's OK

This cartoon is an illustration of a Globe and Mail First Person story by Dr. Mary Ellen Macdonald:

Dr. Macdonald is a professor with the Palliative Medicine division at Dalhousie University. 

Despite her long-standing professional research into issues surrounding grief she, like all of us, describes how in this instance she missed the grief cues right in front of her and that surround us every day.

The field of "Grief Literacy" seeks to help people and society surface and understand the experience of grief that is normal in any life. 

There is a great need for all of us to support each other in grief and remove its hidden nature.

Of course, visuals themselves surface the nuances and impacts of emotions in ways other story-telling cannot. That's why I champion the work of VEOLI.
