Amanda MacGregor wasn't the last to hear about her father's death. But thanks to social media, she certainly wasn't anywhere near the first.

Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

Excerpts:
"No matter how quickly I dialed or typed, odds were I wasn’t the first to deliver this news — my news — to my select list of people."

"Time to privately mourn, or even just take a breath before deciding how to announce a death, seems like a quaint thing of the past. The realization didn’t hit me until this whole mess went down that the actual news and what happens in the immediate aftermath are now tweet-worthy tidbits, Facebook posts, or quick texts arriving with a cheeky ping. Or nasty comments, such as one person posting on my personal blog that I hadn’t cried enough at my father’s funeral, as though I should have been publicly grieving for the nearly 1,000 attendees at the visitation and funeral instead of doing what I was doing — robotically moving in shock, crying in the small bits of privacy I could carve out."
Thanks to social media, it seemed like everyone had heard about the fatal accident before I did.

Introduction
Our Mission

The National Alliance for Grieving Children promotes awareness of the needs of children and teens grieving a death and provides education and resources for anyone who wants to support them... Because all grieving children deserve a chance to heal.

About Us

The National Alliance for Grieving Children provides a network for nationwide communication between hundreds of children's bereavement centers who want to share ideas, information and resources with each other to better support the families they serve in their own communities.

The National Alliance for Grieving Children also provides information on current topics and a schedule of professional workshops across the country.

The National Alliance for Grieving Children is led by an all volunteer Board of Directors that represent programs from all around the country.  Join us by serving on a committee or consider nominating someone for the Board. Meet our Board of Directors.
