During the month of October we celebrate two rather different events in our history. The first one is Columbus Day when we celebrate the man who discovered America.

If you attend LOSS support group meetings you may be able to appreciate that sometimes meetings are really good, and you leave feeling energized and supported; but other times you think it was just okay, or perhaps it was not helpful at all. While we hope that most meetings are good and supportive we know that various factors can make the experience just okay for survivors at times. I have left my fair share of meetings wishing that I had said something different or connected with a lone member a bit more, but this past month I facilitated one of those exceptional meetings. I left feeling humbled, grateful and honored to be a part of the LOSS program. As the meeting started I looked around the room and had the thought that in no other sector of life would such a diverse group of people be coming together. I wondered how this eclectic group of individuals were going to relate.

In witnessing the courageous grief work of so many adolescents and adults, I draw inspiration. Suicide loss can be counted as an immense, life-changing event for which no one is prepared. Such a fundamental loss means change, within and without, for the surviving person, couple and family. How can we enter into a compulsory change process productively?  How do we address our grief within a marriage or family system when our grief response has such a powerful impact on those who depend on us?
