The Smell of Rain on DustHave lost or a country or home we have lost is in itself the greatest praise we could ever give them Grief is praise because it is the natural way love honors what it missesPrechtel explains that the unexpressed grief prevalent in our society today is the reason for many of the social cultural and individual maladies that we are currently experiencing According to Prechtel When you have two centuries of people who have not properly grieved the things that they have lost the grief shows up as ghosts that inhabit their grandchildren These.
