This week, we will reach a grim milestone; we will have lost 100,000 people to the coronavirus illness. That figure is in the United States alone. It is hard to imagine the grief and heartbreak that these last three months have brought. If you watch the news, you see the deaths of human beings represented as a graph or a chart that compares us to other nations. The pandemic is ongoing, and we have the right to focus on next steps for our safety and survival. However, as spiritual beings having a human experience, we need to take the time to mourn the loss and celebrate the lives of those who have passed.
This Sunday, we will celebrate Memorial Day with our traditional ritual and service, honoring the lives of the amazing souls we have lost this year and in years past. For grief does not count years, or days – grief is always experienced in the now.
Join us and please bring your memories and an open heart as we share the spiritual practice of remembering those who have gone before us.
