BEK, I'm sorry to hear about the tragedy and hope that your friend's family can feel the presence of their son from "the other side." I firmly believe that, regardless of religious affiliation, people who die come back and visit us from heaven, the other side, etc. I don't believe that death is the end of all life. My mother died when I was 7 years old and I have felt her guidance throughout my life. She led me to the place where I met my husband and has been an influence even though I do not see her.
As far as the challenge goes, I challenge myself to truly stick to my health life plan for the week - one day at a time.
"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt
"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. " - Eleanor Roosevelt
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt
