Grief is a strong, sometimes overwhelming emotion for people, regardless of whether their sadness stems from the loss of a loved one or from a terminal diagnosis they or someone they love have received.
Everything happens for a reason and we are not to blame.

A Sympathy and Grief Poem:
I give you this one thought to keep,
I am with you still, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glint on the snow.
I am as sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone,
I am with you still in each new dawn.
Within "Fault" we examine various moments within a moment of life. All which culminate in forgiveness. We see and feel this tragedy of loss and the subsequent self medication in order to dull the pain we feel through suffering.
A chain reaction is eluded to by the therapist that depicts and dictates that everything happens for a reason. Perhaps it does but where does it say that the reasons must be positive? A perceived innocent joke becomes a continuous nightmare for all involved. The positive of this negative is the accountability in reaching out for forgiveness and admitting what was done. This simple action reveals the truth and adds new substance to the memory of the moment allowing another step forward in the process of grief.
