I'm in high school, and for an end of the year project, we are researching an essential question based on the novel of our choice.My novel is "Fly Away" by Kristin Hannah and my essential question is "What role does grief and losing a loved one have on the family unit." I'm here to gather information and stories about what it is like to lose a loved one. If you have any experiences or stories to share, please post here. Anonymous stories are welcomed. I am not here to judge, but to gain perspective on a question that doesn't really get much attention in this day and age. Thank you for your consideration.View Thread
I have been lucky enough to not have experienced someone close to me passing away. Therefore, I want to gain perspective on the emotions surrounding this experience, because I have never felt that way before.View Thread
