In an effort to break me out of my funk - I am hoping that helping another might actually help me get out of this gray, dreary, foggy place.
As some of you may know, a friend and coworker lost his 5 year old son due to complications of H1N1 last year. Having the fortune to hear some of his concerns and issues in his bereavement, I always felt helpless in providing him any true comfort. If this is one thing I could do to help him, I will. I cannot imagine, even with our difficulties with disability, ever having to face the day without my children. I cherish them more now than ever after considering that the loss of a child is not as rare an occurrence as I once imagined.
Help modify the Family Medical Leave Act of 1993 to include the death of a child as an additional reason to qualify for the benefits provided by this law. Help a bereaved parent to be able to take a 12 week leave of absence without the worry of losing their job.
...Let’s make a difference.
