Why I got involved with the Grief Dialogues: Our connections define us, and we can accomplish far more together than we can independently. I'm excited to support the Grief Dialogues and its innovative grief therapy technique.

Why I got involved with the Grief Dialogues: A friend of mine told me I nailed the grieving process when I wrote the song “Go On” for her mother’s death. Now I can share this song with Grief Dialogues.

Why I got involved with the Grief Dialogues: Facing anticipatory grief, I felt the need, no the necessity, of connecting with others and our shared losses.

There are definitely some shows that show Death and Dying in it’s rawest form. Breaking Bad and Grey’s Anatomy come to mind. But #grief?
Any ideas?

It takes great vulnerability to open up about the end of life in such a public way. Thank you, @Oprah, for sharing your experience. We are sorry for your loss.

This is why, when I see a great play, I purchase the script ASAP! So I can read the line to myself and savor the moment. @dramatistsguild @PlayAtWriting You’ve inspired me to write some of those lines myself! Thanks!
