What causes some events to be perceived as public tragedies? Some tragedies are raised to a level of public attention that necessarily separates them from the multitude of horrific events that transpire all the time. Deaths and disasters touch the lives of people every day. When and why does a tragedy become public? "Living with Grief: Coping with Public Tragedy" explores the nature of public tragedy, responding to these and other important questions. This book was developed with the Hospice Foundation of America's 10th annual tele-conference, the leading national education program in the field of grief and bereavement, hosted by ABC's Cokie Roberts. The essays included look at factors that define a public tragedy and offer insight and advice to organizations and professionals as they support their communities and help those coping with loss. The book begins by analyzing case examples from selected public tragedies including a first-hand account of Sherry Schachter's experience at Ground Zero, a consideration of the devastation in Florida caused by Hurricane Andrew in 1992, and the shootings at Columbine High School in 1999. Chapters examine our varied responses to public tragedy, techniques available to cope with these events, and the role of the hospice in public tragedies.
