Within a few months in 2014, Nora McInerny lost a pregnancy and both her father and husband to cancer. Her 4 books and her podcast, “Hot young widows club,” deal with the reality that we don’t simply “move on” from grief. In fact, she abhors that phrase, as it implies that grief happens in a moment or an episode. What we really do is move forward, because the person that grief makes us is different than the person we previously were.
Nora’s gift is the ability to inject a measure of humor into an otherwise deadly serious subject, which makes her TED talk, “We don’t move on from Grief” all the more entertaining, enlightening and impactful.
