Transcript of Grieving

By Jacquelyn Nogosek Two reasons people grieve Different Cultures Grieving Some people like having the choice to see a medium after a loved one has passed. By seeing a medium it can give closure and information on how the deceased feel now or how they died. For others, this is all fake. Seeing a medium is one way people grieve and everyone's story with a medium is different. Everyone's story is unique which means they will grieve differently. One reason someone grieves is because someone they love is moving away. They are scared of living life without them even though they are still alive.

The second reason someone grieves is because a loved one has past away. Now they aren't able to see them anymore until they die. This can also be an animal who has passed. This doesn't always need to a person who has died.

Both of these can cause a person to go through sadness in life. We all grieve but we show our emotions differently through cultural traditions and individual choices. Medium Grieving Over a Loss How Native Americans, Buddhist, Jews and people in Europe grieve.
- In Europe when someone dies they wear black colors.
-Buddhists believe that everyone goes through reincarnation and hold 3 prayer meetings after a death.
-For Native Americans they believe in life after death so they only eat certain foods and do certain activities.
-Jews take 7 days after the burial to mourn. During these 7 days men don't shave and no one wears shoes. Doing this it shows that they don't care what is going on in the world. “If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together…there is something you must remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart…I’ll always be with you.”-Winnie the Pooh

Who would have known Winnie the Pooh could touch everyone’s heart? Everyone can take the quote to heart because we all believe this is true. Pooh knows that no matter what happens between you and a loved one that you will always be together. This quote can relate to anyone who has lost a loved one or had someone move somewhere else. Quote “Let me come in where you are weeping, friend,
And let me take your hand.
I, who have known a sorrow such as yours, can understand.
Let me come in — I would be very still beside you in your grief;
I would not bid you cease your weeping, friend,
Tears bring relief. Let me come in — and hold your hand,
For I have known a sorrow such as yours,
And understand.”- Grace Noll Crowell To One In Sorrow Mourning and Rituals -Christians wear black to the funeral, they think the deceased goes to heaven and between the death and funeral services is where they mourn.

-Protestants have a strong belief in eternal life, when they pray their prayer goes straight to God and when someone dies they think they are in a better place.

-Hindus believe in recreation; before cremating the body they wash it, and at the funeral they all wear white and take 13 days to mourn.

-Humanists have memorial services that celebrate life and are not religious rituals.

-Muslims believe the creator Allah judges the person's soul after they die. If the body of the deceased is a woman then a woman washes her body but if it is a male then a male washes him. The burial ritual happens within 24 hours and they mourn for 3 days unless you are the spouse who will mourn for 40 days. The Last Song
