Grief: How Can I Ever Move On?
Will buying a zoo help?
There is a saying that only two things in life are guaranteed – death and taxes. The saying is half right. Every one of us will suffer the loss of someone we love, and in that horrible moment those left behind will ask many questions. Why did this happen? What could I have done to stop it? Why did God allow this? What did I do to deserve this?
The movie We Bought A Zoo is based on the true story of Benjamin Mee, a man who loses his wife to cancer and is left to raise their two children alone. Ignoring his pain and his misery, he tries to move forward but finds that everything around him reminds him of his wife. He takes the drastic step of moving and buying a zoo in order to completely transform his surroundings and escape the pain he has refused to face.
