Mourning is one of the most profound human experiences that it is possible to have ... The deep capacity to weep for the loss of a loved one and to continue to treasure the memory of that loss is one of our noblest human traits.
Two weeks ago, the most devastating thing that could happen to a parent occurred: the death of a child. Five young people from Farmingdale, Long Island, died in a tragic car accident.
The families, friends, and community are in deep mourning.
Even those who did not personally know these individuals feel compassion, empathy, and profound soundness for their families and friends.
At Nassau Guidance & Counseling, our thoughts, hearts, and prayers go out to all those who loved these young people.
