Something Good from Something So Heartbreaking

My last blog post, titled Life as We Know It Can Change in an Instant, was written from my heart in response to the death of a beautiful young woman.

I wrote the blog in response to a tragic event; I shared it as an opportunity to appreciate life and to honor the life of a young woman who brought so much joy to the lives of everyone she knew.

Life as We Know It Can Change in an Instant has already been shared more than 8,600 times; I am so honored that my words resonated with so many people. An editor at the Huffington Post saw it and invited me to share it there. Here’s the link:

  1. Congratulations Candace. I’m sorry something so good had to come from something so bad, but you had something important to say and a lot of people saw that. I hope to see more of your writing out there!

    1. Thanks for your support, Phillip. Although I’m thrilled for the chance to share my writing, I just wish the catalyst for this opportunity had been something else. I’m truly honored that so many people thought my message was important to share.
