As human beings, we are constantly faced with choices, and it is in these moments that our true character is revealed. When death strikes a family, it can bring out the worst in us. We have the power to make decisions that either uplift or devastate others. Sometimes we make the right choices, comforting and supporting our loved ones in their time of grief. But other times, we selfishly take advantage of our choices, causing harm to those around us. We must recognize the impact our decisions have on others and strive to make choices that bring healing rather than pain.
