    Grieving Mother?

     
    When I first read about the tragic death of this poor little girl over the 4th of July, I was devastated. Devastated that a little girl had died, and devastated for the family and the unimaginable pain and grief they most certainly were feeling. I was also slightly confused. I was confused why a 7 year old girl would be allowed to swim unattended, but overall just saddened by the whole situation. I’ve watched over the past few weeks as the family raised over $10,000 through social media. Then, I saw that the family posted this picture. The mother, in the middle, directly after the funeral. Does this remind anyone else of something we’ve seen before? I must admit, it left me wondering – Is this what a grieving mother looks like?
