The Need to Grieve: How Grief and Bereavement Care in the U.S. Needs to be Retooled

National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization

Social Work Hospice and Palliative Care Network

NHPCO and SWHPN Applaud the COVID Memorial Ceremony that Gave America an Opportunity to Grieve as a Nation but Ongoing Support is Critical for National Healing

One of the most profound lasting effects from the coronavirus pandemic will be its impact on how we experience grief.”

— Edo Banach

ALEXANDRIA, VA, USA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The nation’s attention turned to healing on the evening of January 19, 2021 as the Biden administration hosted the Memorial and Nationwide Tribute to Remember and Honor the Lives Lost to COVID-19 at the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and the Social Work Hospice and Palliative Care Network (SWHPN) applaud this powerful event that allowed the nation to publicly grieve together. By lighting candles around the Reflecting Pool, this first-ever event highlighted the need to honor the memories of Americans who have died from COVID, and help their families and friends grieve these losses.

NHPCO and SWHPN offer insight regarding the way bereavement support in the U.S. can be made more accessible to those struggling with loss and grief and issue a call for organizations to join the list of organizations in support of a National Grief Strategy.

“One of the most profound lasting effects from the coronavirus pandemic will be its impact on how we experience grief,” said NHPCO President and CEO Edo Banach. “The significance of loss in our lives is something hospice and palliative care professionals know well.”

The magnitude of the losses feels even greater now during the pandemic for several reasons. For those who have lost a family member, friend, or colleague to COVID-19, in addition to grieving the actual death, there may also be the loss of not being able to be physically present during the dying process. Many people who know someone is dying have anticipatory grief. For others, there has been the loss of financial stability, or loss of the feeling of physical safety. People are missing the normalcy of human contact. Rituals and milestones like funerals, graduations, and weddings have been postponed or eliminated altogether. We are grieving the loss of the life we knew before the virus.

For frontline health care workers, these changes are compounded by some of the most challenging work of their lives. In addition to dealing with limited access to necessary medical and personal protective equipment, and vaccine access, health care workers are managing massive volumes of sick patients, many who are seriously ill, and are learning how to use technology that connects families to those that are isolated and dying, when they would typically be trying to offer a more human connection.

Saying goodbye to someone who is dying can be challenging and has been made measurably worse by the pandemic. Travel restrictions and facility lockdowns have forced people to remain physically separated. Comfort is now provided through facemasks or technology. COVID-19 has denied family members of those in intensive care, nursing homes, and other congregate care facilities the ability to sit at the bedside, stripping away these cherished final moments. Being present in this manner and completing rituals around death are important to the grieving process. Complicated grief and unresolved issues at death can cast a long shadow over those who survive.

“With over 400,000 dead in the United States alone from COVID-19, we are all grieving together, but we are grieving in a country that doesn’t often talk about death or grief,” said SWHPN Executive Director Jessica Strong. “It is time we change that, time we talk about and build a better understanding of grief, so we can all help each other through this difficult time.”

Grief literacy encompasses the idea that if individuals know more about what grief looks and feels like, we can support each other through the most difficult aspects of grief. By creating a culture of awareness and support around grief, Americans can help each other prevent many of the negative long-term health outcomes associated with grief that goes unaddressed.

Humans are inherently drawn to community. We are not meant to face difficult times alone; we need the support of others who understand. This is why hospices frequently offer bereavement support within their communities beyond people with family members who have received hospice care. We are well positioned to provide this kind of support as we move through this pandemic together. We can work together to create a National Grief Strategy, building compassionate communities that support each other.

Call for National Grief Strategy
Additionally, health care leaders and policy makers must engage in a national conversation toward addressing the new and compounded forms of grief that are emerging because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have an opportunity to address this crisis by mobilizing resources and education to assist people in navigating the grief that lies ahead, and in studying the effects of such a collective experience. Please add your name to the growing list of people and organizations that support a National Grief Strategy.

Harrison Street has procured a platform of solar energy assets equivalent to 101.9 megawatts”

— Karol Donimirsky

TORONTO, NEW ZELAND, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Harrison Street secured five commercial and industrial solar assets from an international developer of renewable energy called Ecoplexus. This energy deal will generate 101.9 megawatts of solar energy from the company’s Distributed Generation assets in California and the Community Solar Garden located in Minnesota. The assets will be supplying 142 million kilowatt-hours of solar energy to meet the demands of schools, universities, hospitals, municipalities, and California residents in a long-term contract. The chief of the utilities under Harrison Street, Carolyn Arida, explained that Ecoplexus is a world-renowned developer and renewable energy supplier and they are happy to work with their assets. This contract will provide sufficient solar energy to run about 12900 households and the public institutions like hospitals, schools, and government amenities.

Arida pointed out that Harrison Street partners with companies offering crucial services to the US citizens and are ready to work with Ecoplexus to reduce emissions in California that result from utilizing conventional energy sources like coal-fired power plants. Harrison Street hopes that these projects can steer California and Minnesota markets to take up renewable energy and abandon greenhouse gas emissions generators. The chief executive of Ecoplexus, John Gorman, expressed their joy in dealing with Harrison Streets for renewable energy. The executive termed Harrison Street a leading investor in renewable energy and the proponent of developing renewable energy infrastructure. The deal has proceeded smoothly, and the two stakeholders in the transition to clean energy are looking forward to more ventures that will establish this relationship.

“Young Black Men of Mississippi are Disappearing. Where are They Going?”

#FREEJAYLENBARKER

Malaika Canada is a mother on a mission to free her son from incarceration and vows to fight for other mothers across the United States of America.

Where most mothers would sit down and cry after the verdict, I stood up! I am not that mother. I am the mother that will fight for all mothers!”

— Malaika Canada

COLUMBUS, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The State of Mississippi has some of this country’s highest and most startling rates of incarceration, and the most expeditious rate of diminishing the African-American male population, Malaika Canada, Founder of the Jaylen Barker Foundation, is a ‘mother on a mission’ who says her arsenal of weaponry to fight is unlimited when it comes to proving her son’s innocence. Armed with a team of investigators from all walks of life and every corner of the country, she’s poised and ready to fight for her son, Jaylen Barker, as well as the other young adults that are vanishing at the hands of a judicial system that is embarrassingly and visibly flawed. She believes that false allegations, ineffective counsel, alleged faulty prosecution, an alleged biased judge, a set of circumstantial evidence, and an alleged coerced confession has led to her son’s alleged wrongful conviction and she intends to fight his incarceration.

“Where most mothers would sit down and cry after the verdict, I stood up! I am not that mother. I am the mother that will fight for all mothers and I encourage you to stand with me and fight until they hear our voices. We are in the middle of a pandemic and our innocent son’s need to be home quarantining like everyone else.” – M. Canada –

Jaylen Barker, an African-American, is serving a life sentence in the state of Mississippi Correctional Facility for the capital murder of Joseph Tillman. The sentence was reduced to life in prison, after a plea deal, which Malaika Canada states was coerced.

The crime, which has gotten international attention, occurred on November 6th, 2016. On the outside, this case seems to be no more than a night out, with friends, that ended in murder, on the inside it looks like a mosaic of mistruths, civil rights violations, political conspiracies, omissions of evidence, and even some pitiful admissions of mistakes by one judge.

Jaylen Barker’s entire legal file (from arrest to confinement), is pelted with unconsidered evidence and information that directly refutes the credibility of the judicial system, the prosecutor, and the judge. Ongoing investigations have revealed that his case is not the only case that has been handled this way. Parents from throughout the state are contacting the Jaylen Barker Foundation to rally with her and stop the railroading.

New Research Shows Private Jet Travel To Continue Strong Rebound; Retain New Customers Post-COVID-19

Security concerns may lead private aviation users to switch more flights away from the airlines; Over 95% of new flyers saying they will continue post-pandemic

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Key highlights of the Private Jet Card Comparisons' Subscriber Flash Survey:

– 96% of new private jet travelers plan to continue after the pandemic
– 30% of respondents say domestic terror threats and unrest may increase their percentage of private flights away from the airlines
– 68% expect to travel internationally despite new COVID-19 requirements that include private jet travelers
– Subscribers spent an average of $211,607 on jet card purchases over the past 18 months

Private aviation will continue to be a top performer in the travel and tourism segment in the near term and is well-positioned to keep its momentum in a post-COVID-19 world, according to new research.

A flash survey of subscribers to private aviation solutions buyer's guide Private Jet Card Comparisons found nearly 30% may switch some airline flights to private aircraft amidst concerns about domestic terror threats and unrest in the wake of the riots at the Capitol.

The research also found despite the upcoming COVID-19 testing requirements for anyone entering the U.S., more than two-thirds expect to travel internationally.

What’s more, 96% of respondents who started or restarted flying privately due to the coronavirus say they plan to continue after the pandemic ends.

Respondents to the survey, conducted via email from Jan. 15 to Jan. 19, were evenly split between subscribers who had been using private aviation before the pandemic and those who had started or restarted, seeking to minimize COVID-19 exposure. Previous research shows fewer than 20 touch points when using a private jet compared to over 700 with the airlines.

Over four in 10 respondents (41%) who are newbies said they would continue to fly privately "regularly" after the pandemic is over. A further 55% said they would use private aviation “once in a while after the pandemic is over.” Only 4% expect to stop private flights.

"The results show private aviation should expect a significant net gain in customers and flying post-pandemic," said Doug Gollan, Founder, and Editor-in-Chief of Private Jet Card Comparisons. "New private aviation users were very clear that once they started flying privately, they came to understand the broad benefits. Sadly, domestic unrest is now becoming a consideration as well."

FOR NEW PRIVATE FLYERS – POST-COVID-19 PRIVATE JET TRAVEL OUTLOOK:

– 41% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 55% plan to fly privately once in a while after the pandemic is over
– 4% plan to stop flying privately once the pandemic is over

“I’m really not sure why I didn’t do this sooner,” said one new private traveler. Another added, “You can buy the cheapest car, or you can pay more for a nicer car, with a better ride, safer and more comfortable. Private jets are just a better way to travel if you can afford it, and if you can afford it, it makes a lot of sense in so many ways.”

A McKinsey analysis last year estimated there were only around 100,000 regular private aviation users in the U.S., although 1.5 million affluent households have the means. Private air charters are back to 90% of pre-COVID levels, largely driven by new users.

Of subscribers who were flying privately prior to the pandemic, 38% said they would likely increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over, with 55% saying usage will be similar to before COVID-19.

FOR EXISTING PRIVATE FLYERS – POST-COVID-19 PRIVATE JET TRAVEL OUTLOOK:

– 55% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 38% plan to increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over
– 7% plan to decrease the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over

Several respondents were skeptical of cleaning and social distancing procedures by the airlines. Others added that decreased airline schedules mean much longer travel times and more problematic connections.

The riot at the Capitol, threats to elected officials in airports, and the possibility of more domestic terrorism and unrest is also spurring more respondents to private jets. Nearly a third (32%) of new private flyers said they might end up switching some flights away from the airlines to private aviation.

FOR NEW PRIVATE FLYERS – RESPONSE TO CAPITOL RIOT/DOMESTIC THREATS:

– 68% won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 16% say if there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

“The stuff at the airport was quite concerning,” said one subscriber. Another said, “We fly to several state capitals, and there are less flights, to begin with, so this just makes it an easy decision to go private…It certainly makes sense to have a plane at the airport waiting to go if something did happen.”

Those who were flying privately prior to COVID-19 were less likely (26%) to be thinking about switching flights from airlines, with a number of respondents offering comments like, “No impact. I only fly private.”

FOR EXISTING PRIVATE FLYERS – RESPONSE TO CAPITOL RIOTS/DOMESTIC THREATS:

– 74% Won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 10% say If there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

Overall, 30% of respondents say they may move more of their flying to private aviation due to concerns about domestic unrest.

Just over two-thirds of respondents (68%) say they expect to travel internationally despite the new U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 testing requirements, which include private jet arrivals.

FOR IMPACT OF CDC COVID-19 TESTING REQUIREMENTS FOR PRIVATE JET TRAVELERS:

– 31% say I would travel outside the US if I have confidence I can get tested locally before returning
– 28% say the new CDC requirements make it less likely I will travel outside the US
– 25% say I plan to travel outside the US, and it doesn’t have an impact
– 16% say I would travel outside the US if the hotel/resort provides testing on-property

About a third (31%) said they would travel internationally so long as they have confidence they can get tested locally before returning. A further 28% said the new CDC requirements would make it less likely they take international trips, while 25% said the new rule, which goes into effect on Jan. 26, doesn’t have an impact. Some 16% said they would travel internationally so long as the hotel or resorts provides on-property testing.

PRIVATE JET SOLUTIONS

In terms of private aviation solutions, 83% of Private Jet Card Comparisons subscribers use jet cards, 32% charter on a trip-by-trip basis, 12% catch rides on friends’ private jets, 6% have fractional shares, 4% own their own private jets, and 1% fly on private aircraft for companies they work for, but don’t own. Numbers add up to more than 100% due to subscribers who have multiple solutions.

Only 1% say they use semi-private services where they can split costs or buy single seats. Some 3% said they haven’t flown privately yet, but are looking at options, while under 1% said they haven’t flown privately in the past 24 months and don’t expect to fly privately in the next year.

Of subscribers who bought or renewed a jet card that included a deposit within the past 18 months, the average deposit was $211,607. Additionally, 6% purchased pay-as-you-go jet cards and memberships where they paid a joining fee but didn’t have to wire any funds to keep on the account.

For jet card users, 61% said it was the first time they bought a jet card from that provider, 40% renewed with an existing provider, and 26% said they didn’t need to buy additional hours. Numbers add up to more than 100% as some users bought jet cards from multiple providers. About 1 in 5 (19%) reported switching providers.

The survey garnered 145 responses with a 4% +/- margin of error. A donation of $10 per respondent is being made to Feeding America, enough to provide 14,500 meals to those in need.

ABOUT PRIVATE JET CARD COMPARISONS

The annual price of a 12-month subscription to the online private aviation buyer’s guide is $250 and comes with personal assistance via its JET CARD DECIDER service.

Hindu Temple Destroyed & Budhist Statue Installed in Sri Lanka

Successive Sri Lankan Governments were involved in the destruction of Hindu Temples for several decades and build Buddhist Temples in it's place.

JAFFNA, SRI LANKA, January 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —

In the latest development of continuing destruction of Hindu Temples and installing Buddhist Temples in their place took place in Sri Lanka's Northern Province town of Mullaitivu on Monday (18th).

The ancient Hindu temple in a place called Kurunthoormalai was destroyed and a Buddhist statue was installed in it's place and consecrated by a group of Sri Lankan Security forces and Sinhalese led by Mr. Vidura Wikramanayake , Sri Lanka's State Minister for National Heritage.

There are thousands of Hindu temples in Sri Lanka, including several ancient Temples. Successive Sri Lankan Governments were involved in the destruction of Hindu Temples for several decades and build Buddhist Temples in it's place.

Destroying Hindu temples and building Buddhist Temples in it's place has accelerated since the war ended in 2009.

Building of Buddhist Temples in Tamil areas are followed by Sinhalese settlements, with the aim to make Sinhalese as the dominant ethnic group in Tamil's traditional homelands in the North and East of the island.

This event was held despite nationwide Coronavirus restrictions. Tamil journalists were prevented by the police from attending this event.

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) has called for international action to stop this cultural genocide, including highlighting the importance of international protection Mechanism, to stop this continuing acts by successive Governments.

ABOUT THE TRANSNATIONAL GOVERNMENT OF TAMIL EELAM (TGTE):

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is a democratically elected Government of over a million strong Tamils (from the island of Sri Lanka) living in several countries around the world.

TGTE was formed after the mass killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan Government in 2009.

TGTE thrice held internationally supervised elections among Tamils around the world to elect 135 Members of Parliament. It has two chambers of Parliament: The House of Representatives and the Senate and also a Cabinet.

TGTE is leading a campaign to realize the political aspirations of Tamils through peaceful, democratic, and diplomatic means and its Constitution mandates that it should realize its political objectives only through peaceful means. It’s based on the principles of nationhood, homeland and self-determination.

TGTE seeks that the international community hold the perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against the Tamil people to account. TGTE calls for a referendum to decide the political future of Tamils.

The Prime Minister of TGTE is Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, a New York based lawyer.

BACKGROUND

Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka faced repeated mass killings in 1958, 1977, and 1983 and the mass killings in 2009 prompted UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to appoint a Panel of Experts to report on the scale of the killings.

According to UN internal review report on Sri Lanka, over 70 thousand Tamils were killed in six months in early 2009 and Tamil women were sexually assaulted and raped by the Sri Lankan Security forces.

International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) in February 2017 handed over details to UN of Sri Lankan Military run "Rape Camps", where Tamil women are being held as “sex slaves”. Also, According to UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office report on April 2013, there are over 90 thousand Tamil war widows in Sri Lanka.

Thousands of Tamils disappeared, including babies and children. UN Working Group on Enforced Disappearances stated in 2020 that the second highest number of enforced disappearance cases in the world is from Sri Lanka.
According to this UN report, the killings and other abuses that took place amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. Independent experts believe that there are elements of these abuses that constitute an act of genocide.

Members of the Sri Lankan security forces are almost exclusively from the Sinhalese community and the victims are all from the Tamil community. A Buddhist Monk shot and killed a Sri Lankan Prime Minister 1959 for having talks with Tamils.

Tamils overwhelmingly voted in a Parliamentary election in 1977 to establish an independent and sovereign country called Tamil Eelam. This Parliamentary election was conducted by the Sri Lankan Government.

The sculpture "Le baiser de 1905" cornerstone of the work of Brancusi

PARIS, PARIS, FRANCE, January 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The particularity of this work is to be at the same time the first work of modern art in the world, the cornerstone of the work of Brancusi and to be at the origin of the discovery of the "Knowledge and know-how of process of creation which demonstrates the common origin of the culture of all "Humanity" listing the knowledge and practices of "Humanity". This unique and exceptional work is a key to understanding the art and architecture of all cultures having existed from the period of Antiquity to the Modern period.

This discovery led to the development of a universal methodology for interpreting the works of art of all humanity. It is leading to a paradigm shift in the valuation of works of art, a change that will soon revolutionize the art market. It should be noted that this discovery involves various scientific disciplines such as science, defined as the body of knowledge and studies of universal value, characterized by a method based on verifiable objective observations and rigorous reasoning, biology, geometry (the theorems of Thales and Pythagoras…), mathematics (the Fibonacci sequence, the golden ratio…), Egyptology, religions and Freemasonry, we have identified a common link to the great achievements of all times and cultures and are currently working on an application using artificial intelligence that will allow the market to evolve beneficially. Each heritage represents symbols common to humanity (fish, egg, foetus, pentagon…) and reveals ancient myths (notably Egyptian, such as that of Isis). The universal interpretation of creation confirms the existence of a common origin that unites all cultures. This is what Brancusi's work represents. From this discovery, the so-called universal interpretation of creation was developed. In other words, thanks to the knowledge of humanity and the universal methodology for deciphering art, we now know the many bridges that are emerging between the different cultures of the planet and bring together the great achievements of "Humanity". This is a great revelation: the knowledge and know-how of the creative process makes it possible to decipher the art of each country and thus to highlight the fact that there is a common origin for all the cultures of "Humanity".

These discoveries were presented and praised by great scientists under the high patronage of the President of the French Republic and at UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). They have been judged remarkable, for applying a rigorous scientific method, by Professor Beséat Kiflé Selassié, former Director of the International Fund for the Promotion of Culture (IFPC) of Unesco. This discovery is also a means of evoking and promoting, at the crossroads of the tangible and the intangible, peace in the minds of men, an indispensable step in a world that is today in full confusion. UNESCO's pioneering role is to promote dialogue among civilizations, cultures and peoples. The "knowledge and know-how of the process of creation" perfectly fulfils this objective by uniting humanity around common values. For this reason, it is necessary to include "universal knowledge and know-how of creation" as part of UNESCO's intangible heritage and to work together all over the world to disseminate this knowledge and methodology.

This sculpture is a treasure of inestimable value because the value of this sculpture is Universal.

It will be presented during the congress for the Year of Culture between France and China from June 18 to 21, 2021 at MACAO in China with Pansy Ho, Bernard Sok, Rita dos Santos, and Wai Kit Lei.
