Remembering The Dead and Comforting The Survivors

Tuesday, April 17, 2007  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The New York Times is providing some details on the lives of those murdered yesterday.  It is very hard reading but as with the victims of 9/11 and the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines killed in the war, it is important for people to read the details of these lives, especially the young ones.

I also repost a link that Joe Carter pointed us to a few weeks ago: Best Advice On How To Comfort A Grieving Parent. 

Pastor Mark Daniels also has a compelling series of posts on when tragedy strikes the innocent.

Theologian and pastor Mark Roberts, philospher and philosophy professor John Mark Reynolds, and Professor David Allen White will all join me at points of today’s show to discuss sorrow and how to help people grieve.

See also Paul Mirengoff’s brief salute to Virginia Tech Professor Liviu Librescu.  Had Professor Librescu read the plays of the killer, he would have recognized an evil he had survived more than six decades ago.

UPDATE: Powdertracks has a key collection of resources for grieving people.
