#56 Thursday Thoughts: Do You Believe in the Concept of a Global, Shared Grief?

As people who were so affected by the loss of mum, seeing the pain and grief unleashed across the TV breaks our hearts. We have been deeply affected by the pain of the Ukrainian people. Now more than ever it is crucial to stay informed, and donate to reliable and trusted sources (where possible).

How about you? Do global events impact your relationship with grief? Or is it a new type of global grief we are sharing?

Please find these resources collected from Besides The Obvious. This is a fantastic list of resources for what people from the UK, Poland, Hungary, and Spain (as well as advice and help for Ukraine) can do to help.

If anyone else from unmentioned countries has any help or advice, please feel free to comment below 💛💙

  1. I think it’s all connected. There is weight from grief that one by one we bear. We bear grief from loss we know close in and loss far away. It’s human, and I think it’s real. Thanks for asking, and I hope this is a fair response. I hope you are both and all very well. Thank you for including resources to help ameliorate the war in Ukraine.

  2. “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” Jesus, John 16:33
    Pray for Ukraine and the Russian soldiers that there will be minimal loss of lives, and that Putin will realize who he is most like in history and that his legacy will be the same if he continues Hitler’s way.
    ❤️&🙏, c.a.

  3. It’s really disgusting what is happening in Ukraine, here in the Netherlands a lot of collections have been initiated but I truly wonder where it all ends, ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  4. I can’t imagine anyone seeing what’s going on in Ukraine right now and not being affected. It’s horrible and it just makes you feel so helpless. It also puts many of the things we worry about every day into perspective. I just donated to the Ukraine Relief fund through the Canadian Red Cross today. My company matches all our donations. It’s a small thing but, other than prayer, there’s not much else we can do.

  5. I’m feeling sad about the situation and have wrting about my emotions during the week ..

    “Bloody History, Bloody Tears”

    Can you hear the ghosts of Sunday?
    “Sunday, Bloody Sunday”

    From your distant country’s
    Of peace and tranquility
    Within your rural trees of serenity

    Beyond invisible borders of rivalry
    Between oblivious inequality
    From the old schoolyard bully
    Overseeing an avoidable atrocity

    Again another “Sunday, Bloody Sunday”
    How can they forget history so quickly?

  6. I also suggest that animals are also linked in global grief, anger, love, fear… If we are sad near our companion animals, do they not take that on board? If people are violent towards others in front of animals, do they not then take that experience on board? We’ve got away with so much as a species, but there’s been signs over the last decade or more that “Domesticated” ~ “Livestock” are getting more and more aggressive. Something is happening around the planet and it’s not just humans. Therefore, I feel we have a calling to be peaceful, loving, joyful, kindness personified in this turbulent time.

    1. Thankfully. more and more people are taking on board. becoming less and less reliant on eating other sentient beings. I believe this is part of the way forward. Knowing what we can do and then doing it, isn’t that the key?
