I don't know how the world works. Today at school a documentary film-maker was interviewed. After watching a beautiful film the interviewer posed the question to the audience, "do you agree that our society isn't prepared for death?". All day prior to this I was feeling quite unwell and struggling to understand why lives can end so suddenly and without warning. So my first response was yes. But after thinking about the real question I decided that my answer was actually no. What we aren't prepared for is grief.
