A Big Post About Big Changes

Written by

For millions of kids around the world, 1994 was the year they learned about the grim reality of death. It didn’t just happen to people who were old, sick, or careless. It could be completely unexpected. It might not even be your fault. Did they learn this after a death in the family or the unexpected loss of a friend? Not necessarily.
