Poet Elizabeth Alexander offers insight into living through grief

…we may be profoundly lonely, but we are never alone. There is always a new village to be created; there is always someone who will surprise you with their kindness. If you were loved deeply, you are loved—that doesn’t go away. And no one can tell you how to walk your unique road, just know that there are companions along the road, and often in surprising places.
