It was May 18 when I shared my thoughts about the senseless shootings at a grocery store in New York and a church in California. Then, on May 24, 19 children and 2 teachers were killed in Uvalde, Texas. And now our own community in Highland Park at a 4th of July parade. It’s hard to find words to talk about four massacres in less than two months.
But that is exactly what is needed right now. We need to find words (and other healthy, expressive mediums) to express the range of emotions we are feeling – anger, sadness, fear, disbelief, concern, exhaustion… the list could go on and on. We must draw close as a community and share our grief, support one another and vow to make things better.
For more than 70 years, Josselyn therapists have been present for you and for our community to talk. We support our clients through the darkest moments of their lives. We help to find the words that will allow us to process, grieve, and heal.
If you, or someone you know, needs help processing the events of this week or of a lifetime, please don’t delay. Our Northfield Walk-In Clinic is available, Monday – Friday, 9am to 3pm.
This special edition of Talk lists multiple resources available to you. Please share this widely and frequently with your own networks.
We will grieve together and support each other.
