Writing Through Grief

Blogs are incredible vehicles for exploring our passions and finding our voices. They can also be powerful tools for healing in the face of trauma; for many of us, the act of writing is a cathartic one.

These brave moms are blogging their way through one of life’s more traumatic losses: the loss of a child. Calling themselves babyloss blogs, they provide insight for those of us who have never experienced this unique pain and support for other parents starting to navigate the same grief — along with hope that life does go on, and happiness is still possible.

We’d really appreciate your help. But first, a bit of background:

Oracle BI 11g: I Don't Like Mondays

To be honest, I like Mondays. And it's Thursday. But it made such a catchy title ;-)
