In this Memorial Day episode of the Holistic Wealth podcast with Keisha Blair, we have an exciting solo episode on how to cope with tragedy and grief in light of the Texas shooting at Robb Elementary School killing 19 students and two teachers as well as the shooting in Buffalo. This episode also features insights from Actress Kelly Rutherford, star of Gossip Girl, Melrose Place and Dynasty. The Texas shooting and the shooting in Buffalo were heartbreaking. I’ve personally endured heartbreaking tragedy after the sudden and tragic loss of my husband at a very young age. I know what its like to have to pick up the fragments of my life and move on, and I know so many families are experiencing extraordinary pain right now. So many of us have also experienced gun violence – as a matter of fact too many. In the United States alone there have been 27 school shootings so far this year and its only half way through the year. There have been 214 mass shootings so far this year in the United States.
We’re also still in the midst of a pandemic, and a high-inflation period, with rising gas prices, rising food prices and rising interest rates. We are also in the midst of a war with Russia invading Ukraine. The pandemic has caused us all to look more deeply at our lives to examine the direction we want our post-pandemic lives to take. Holistic Wealth as I outlined in my book and in the podcast episode also include social justice and violence free communities that are safe for our children. In this episode I will walk you through effective strategies to cope during tragedy and grief. In the NEW Holistic Wealth Expanded and Updated: 36 Life Lessons To Help You Recover From Disruption, Find Your Life Purpose and Achieve Financial Freedom, there are many strategies throughout to help you master the “Art of Recovery From Disruption”. I also read from the Foreward of the book, a few lines written by Foreward writer Kelly Rutherford. Tune in to listen to this episode of the Holistic wealth podcast with Keisha Blair.
