“Don’t waste yourself in rejection, nor bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

I realize it is very difficult to understand why things happen that bring unhappy situations and sadness into our experience of life. I have talked to many people who wonder why a loved one was taken away in an accident or other situation that had ended their life here on this planet.

There is no real explanation, that I am aware of, that can end their grief and leave them cheerful after losing a child, brother, sister, mother, father, or even a lovable pet. Time heals all feelings and allows one to go on with their life and put aside the thoughts of why it happened.

The good that comes out of a situation of sudden departure of a loved one is to let them go on their journey but keep the memories of them in one’s mind of the good times and lessons we learned from them...
