I found myself in a therapy session Saturday, grieving the deaths of the San Bernardino Shootings, as 12 of the 14 victims were environmental science/health specialists, ie Public Health workers. This event, because it is my area that I am getting my degree in, knocked me back on my keaster. I called a nearby Public Health agency to see if there was a collection taking place, but they said no. Then I was going to dedicate this term's project to the victims, but because my paper is not a thesis nor a dissertation, I am not allowed. This made me feel even more powerless, and I was not able because of distance to attend any of the funerals. I want to do something, not sure what, but I have to, because I feel like these folks are my PH brothers and sisters. Here is a list of things, choose which is best for me to do for these EH/PH workers:

2. It's been a while, but I took the first class on 'Death and Dying' at Glendale College back in the 80s. And now here I am, going through the motions of the stages. Are you familiar with Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, her books on dying, loss, grief. etc and the concept?

3. Grieving over a loss doesnt necessarily need to be about a death. It can be over the loss of relationship, moving, a child leaving for college, etc. Have you ever experienced a non-death related loss and found that you went through the stages that Kubler-Ross postulates?

I am the type of person that needs labels or an explanation for my feelings. So the Kubler-Ross is beneficial for me. How about you, does having a label, reason, or explanation for how you feel help you transition what you are going through?
