A website for grieving spouses

angie805

The American Widow Project was created by 21-year-old Taryn Davis, whose husband Michael was killed in Iraq last year.

When her husband died, Taryn wanted to connect with other military widows, but found that the resources were scarce. All she received from the military was a binder detailing how to plan a funeral, as well as a few small black boxes with Michael's personal belongings "What's foremost in your head is the clothes, because you cannot wait to smell him," she said, "and you open [the black boxes] and it smells like Tide. Everything is sanitized, everything is wiped down."

Taryn decided to make a documentary and created the site in which widows and widowers can share their stories and find advice on how to deal with their grief. Although it was designed for military widows and widowers, the information can surely help anyone that is grieving over a lost loved one. Visit the site at Link

Thank you for sharing that. This isn't about grieving, but I saw something on CNN today about making it possible for soldiers to keep in touch with their families through a video site like youtube ... I think they were calling it troop tube. I don't think we can do enough for the men and women who put themselves in harm's way daily. Whether you believe in the cause or not, you have to support the people who are standing up for our country.
