good for the future, for the kids and the generations to come
after me.” It is easy to see how ‘living in the moment’ with
the intention of gifting the future gives hope and purpose to
our patients, even if they do not necessarily believe in a ‘here
after’.
   There is something here that non-religious believers share
with people of religious faith and that we can put to use. Their
scope of concern is for the “here and now” as they live in the
moment. In my reading I find that every major religion has its
own version of the “golden rule”; “Do unto others as you would
have them do unto you;” a yearning for justice and for doing
the moral good.
   While our faith perspectives may vary, our concern for our
fellow sojourners and the generations to come is a very com-
mon bond. For believer and non-believer, the common un-                Niagara Hospice staff and volunteers participated
derstanding of the human spirit is far more powerful than we        in the Lewiston Kiwanis Club Peach Festival Parade

                                There is a Honduran proverb
                             that advises, “A grief shared is
                             half grief.” The Niagara Hospice
                             Outreach Department knows first-

                             and the comfort that is found when
                             individuals in grief come together
                             to share their feelings and experi-
                             ences. Niagara Hospice’s Circle
        Jennifer Peth        of Hope program provides a wide
                             variety of grief and loss workshops
and support groups that are open to the entire Niagara County
community.
   When we are grieving we often feel isolated, like there is no
one who understands how we feel, and no one who will listen
to us express our grief. At a grief support group the bereaved
can meet with others who have also lost loved ones, who are                  Outreach Groups
familiar with the difficult and painful experience of grief, and
who are open and ready to listen to the grief feelings of others       sponsored by Niagara Hospice
as well as to share their own. Attendees of support groups are               Newly Bereaved Workshop
often surprised by the instant connection that they feel with          Growing through Grief Support Group
other group members. Even people who are normally very
private with their emotions may find themselves opening up                   Bereavement Coffee Hours
in group, finding safety and comfort in the honest and caring                   Journaling Workshop
group atmosphere.                                                       Grieving the Loss of a Pet Workshop
