the second night they would tell me somethin i were no honey it's a member of the thinking you know like somebody as kym so a question you collect embarrassed because he did you know what to answer in ditches with itchy yet they used to usually with egypt or do you think he recently african american because they met and then standing in a wretched speak english but dinner was real cool mind is there another yeah cause i just pull your great year in our scared scared to literally i know english and our estimate as they enter they also attacked an afro scare monger and for realtors in february he includes in let me quit his own lands so what did you not hurt hopefully emotional reactions here though i'm actually
a leaf or start anew and was ignored then there's the value that you get out and who are taking more than two years and they have to be politically to allow you know that you know i think how severe they were to sit there and say go to jail it is all of us are in touch with their feelings sometimes we don't want them to ourselves and if we do they're often difficult to accept
pakistan sometimes like really we do that americans have homework of the tracks is something up there from puerto rican nothing to do with a dish of a committee chair union sheriff song just hadn't problems fights and i have them were sentenced that stuff lately that's right that guy for that something you generally value is the man glamour and so my aunt in
that legs and researcher and i imagine what i think about eight when they miss him person dead and miss the person and i really care about the person who kind of bad now having them had patented them that not unless somebody me cause they say that would cement iceman remember dave
is that always seemed to you kept up with them you can have power don't think you can think about the things the good things they gave what do you do to make yourself feel better have fun oh no i'm going to travel to a czech air controller work must have them on the cheap cheap to start a mad dog owner five and even know of try harder we wanted we were sitting around seventy know if it was really important to
hear my great grandmother through our students haley a lot to me because you know i asked them all still not turn corn that there are two things she do the major realty a precondition this mostly bare like when i would see and she used that tell me again it turns stormy as she used to say to me for many people the slave era lot like photo scientists several of the tiny mayor
lam they are yeah somebody who loves booming moran primary i respect a very gifted and she's a psychiatry switch the joslin clinic and i've known you for orlando only years but that i find myself there was a young lady earlier that spoke about losing her grandmother and how she dealt with
that loss maybe maybe you can now share with with the thousands of young people listening and the adults about how in person michael about dealing with his or her last was the first thing that though we often kids are not is to say to cover it up so we find something to take up the time that then if you stop reading or stop playing or whatever it is you doing the sydney find yourself remembering grandmother knew him said the question then is when the world into the sadness and a lot of people try to pretend it isn't their increase in my field we'd say if you said you said going to cry cry when somebody feels really really so yeah i mean you know their families real sadness are and what happens then you know it's your whole brass is that one has to go through that a young person must go through because if you're really sad uniting be aware that you maybe just i stopped in your tracks may not be worth much of anything man have much energy and the first thing that somebody might wanna do to help is to try to
encourage you to talk about your grandmother for instance i'd like to know about the little child's grandmother what she looked like what you like to do what to a story she told her grandchild some very personal things about her then after you work through that then maybe she'll begin to cry and that would mean that the sadness was a little bit less denied you ciao to be just a little less stuck in it and as you keep talking about it you'd find that she drew a listen happy things and begin to feel better about grandmother and the more you can get the next remembering good things and also remembering sad feelings than we were two out of it which is seen as it's ok to cry that's ok to craft an intern for anybody for a boy girl and woman child be still make a difference doesn't matter traveled the minute that you know they're right now greg there was another young fellow that bit sad that i spoke to arm today he lost the use of his leg and he had another type of loss and then that was kind of hard for him to walk him
to deal with hard to be depictions of course always have special problems because you got a broken leg you it's gonna hear you're knocked out of the running for quite a while annual make the team that year for sure so that in an orthopedic hospital for instance you hear like kids wondering how they've been a deal with the loss of their good foot that kicks have a good arm throws and that's kind of lost to what julie that kind you often get over so they're many types of law says gerry egan is your best friend you can lose your top rank in school you can lose your capacity to relate to the teacher could somebody else does it better we all have losses after lives as was the most important to remember is that we're all very much alike are differences in there but actually basically were all very much the same what change will say no way well why didn't this next segment listen to his voice as he really gets into the curator at one hour infractions are apparently she doesn't
