While many American families were celebrating Halloween by trick-or-treating in all their costume regalia, some families were spending the evening by grieving and remembering loved ones who have passed on. Truthteller Victoria Markham, whose son Koa was killed in a tragic accident, once again moved me to tears with this beautiful tribute dedicated to bereaved parents everywhere.
I can’t tell you how much this story touches me. This is the second of three stories Truthteller Victoria Markham recently submitted about coping with the death of her three-year-old son, Koa. Anyone who has ever felt the empty, echoing pain of losing a child can relate to her story, as can anyone who has ever loved another human being.
I am so moved by this story. So moved. Truthteller Victoria Markham penned it about a year after the passing of her three-year-old son, Koa. I feel her still-raw pain and feel so much grace in her journey as I read it, and I am also touched by her strength—a strength she never asked to earn.
