1. Introduction

We have never featured this as an individual topic before. But as we are evolving along our Grief journey, so too is our blog and the topics that we publish.

There is relevance in this being part of our journey, over time as a community we suffer collective grief over lives of those lost innocently by simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, not fitting into the “norm” of society and for many other unfortunate reasons.

We are about uplifting and supporting people from all backgrounds and walks of life. We also feel, that like Grief, Black History, Racism, and matters of this kind can be deemed as taboo subjects. We are all about trying to help to break down taboos and spread awareness, this is why this being a topic is important to us.

We also have topics on:

We are two sisters on a journey of life and grief, sharing our story as we go along. This is not something that should only be recognised within one month of the year, however we will do our best to try and help spread awareness, and this is why we have decided to do this as a topic.
