It is never easy to lose a parent. When you lose a father you lose a sense of yourself as the child who related to the role your father played in your life. Across all age boundaries, when we are with our fathers we are still his child. The role of the patriarch is a powerful one. Collectively we have all had a father, whether we knew him or not. The role your father played in your life not only affects how you grieve but how you live. This show is about that!
I join you in being deeply saddened by last week's senseless massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. How are we to make sense of all the hurt? How do we go about living our lives? In this episode of 'Get Personal with Edy,' I share with you some of my own person techniques for pressing forward when the news is so grim.
My new show 'Get Personal With Edy' is all about you. This is your space to discuss issues that have been considered 'taboo' by other shows. With so much sadness in the news lately, this is your space to open up and let it out. If you have an idea for a show topic, or simply want to open up, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
