Empathy






Standing on My Brother’s Shoulders            Tara J Lal      

Making peace with Grief and Suicide


‘Tara’s life was battered by her father’s mental illness and by her mother’s death when she was thirteen. Caught up in grief and despair, she developed a deep, caring bond with her charismatic and kind older brother Adam, though he struggled silently with growing anxiety and depression. Four years after her mother’s death Adam took his own life.

Grief and insecurity threatened to engulf Tara, but eventually she found, through the dialogue with the words her brother left behind in his diaries, her reason to live.’
