NORMA BOWE: You know, I think in our culture we spend a lot of time avoiding death.
We don’t talk about it. If someone we love dies, we, if we’re lucky, get maybe a three-day hiatus from work and from school and we’re just supposed to move on.
And I think that’s a real disservice because I think unless you’re able to properly grieve, you know, you can get pretty physically sick from carrying around that kind of a burden.
