.First and for most I myself have lost many in my life.I am in grief now): In November it will be two years we laid our mother to rest.I have lost a husband.I have lost a sibling.We lost two family members to suicide.I lost several friends to suicide and or overdose.The reason I am sharing this is to let others who may not know me will see that I would never want to increase someones grief nor harm grievers.I know we grieve daily,many have said they don't need a day to grieve they already grieve.I agree.I would ask you to see really what this is about.This is not about our family who have passed.Its for you the griever,and the many grievers who will be on this painful journey.This is a day to give love to one another in the grieving community.to maybe remember that someone in my community is still grieving.To raise awareness about grief.To bring to the light the myths and cliches that harm rather then help.To teach a new language.Many grievers myself included felt isolated,misunderstood,and lost.We have been told to move on,get over it.This is another way to shed light on something that everyone in the world faces.Thanks again to all our supporters,who see the bigger picture here.I appreciate your love,kindness and support!!!! Sending loving hugs to you all!!!

By signing this petition you are giving a voice to the grievers all around the world who grieve in silence.We our creating change,education,and awareness.We want to smash so many myths about grief.All the cliches that create harm instead of help.Letting people know grief is not an over night manner.The most important is letting all that grieve know they have people who understand.They are not alone,and we are listening.
