Once More We Saw Stars

index.aspxNo parent should ever have to deal with the loss of a child. Author Jayson Greene never gave it a second thought until the unthinkable happened. His 2 year old daughter Greta was sitting on a bench outside a NYC apartment building along with her grandmother one day, when a loose brick dislodged from an eighth story windowsill. One chunk hit Greta in the head, and the other hit her grandmother on her legs. Greta was kept alive long enough to donate her organs; her grandmother recovered from her injuries. Greene has written an account of how he and his wife were able to pull themselves back from the brink of total despair. They learned how to live in a world without their daughter in it, and his memoir is a heartbreaking story that is a true inspiration to the reader.
