"We Need Not Walk Alone"
We need not
walk alone. We are The Compassionate Friends.
We reach out to each other with love, with understanding, and with hope.
we mourn have died at all ages and from many different causes, but our love
for them unites us.
Your pain becomes my pain, just as your hope becomes my hope.
We come together
from all walks of life, from many different circumstances.
We are a unique family because we represent many races, creeds, and relationships.
We are young, and we are old. Some of us are far along in our grief,
but others still feel a grief so fresh and so intensely painful
that they feel helpless and see no hope.
Some of us
have found our faith to be a source of strength, while some of us are struggling
to find answers.
Some of us are angry, filled with guilt or in deep depression, while others radiate an inner peace.
But whatever pain we bring to this gathering of The Compassionate Friends,
it is pain we will share, just as we share with each other
our love for the children who have died.
We are all
seeking and struggling to build a future for ourselves, but we are committed
building a future together. We reach out to each other in love to share the pain as well as the joy,
share the anger as well as the peace, share the faith as well as the doubts,
and help each other to grieve as well as to grow.
We need not walk alone. We are The Compassionate Friends.
