Colorado Gold Star Parents Weekend
October 5 - October 7
Nothing can interrupt a dream like the death of a loved one. Our life’s narrative not only takes an unexpected turn, but it can feel as if our story has ended. In reality, our story does continue, albeit not as we expected. We know as people who have loved and lost (and from contemporary grief research) that the relationship with our beloved does not end, and continuing bonds not only bring us comfort, but helps us adjust to life after loss.
The Colorado Gold Star Parents gather each year to honor all of the military servicemen and servicewomen who lost their lives in military service since 2000. Those honored were not all killed in action or terrorism incidents. Some died after returning home from wounds obtained during their service such as traumatic brain injuries or rapidly growing cancers. Some are deaths from training or car accidents. Some are suicides.
Heather Stang will offer a Vision Board Workshop for Grief as a part of the Colorado Gold Star Parents Weekend. This is a closed event. Learn more on the Colorado Gold Star Parents Weekend website.
