Good Grief

A military child grieving the death of a parent visits the Korean War Memorial as part of the TAPS "Good Grief Camp" on May 26, 2012 in Washington, DC. Five hundred military children and teens, most of whom lost a parent or sibling in the Afghan and Iraq wars, are attending the annual four-day "Good Grief Camp" in Arlington, Virginia and Washington, DC, which is run by TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors). The camp helps them learn coping skills and build relationships so they know they are not alone in the grief of their loved one. They meet others of their own age group, learn together and share their feelings, both through group activities and one-on-one mentors, who are all active duty or former military service members. Some 1,200 adults, most of whom are grieving parents and spouses, also attend the National Military Survival Seminar held concurrently with the children's camp. The TAPS slogan is "Remember the Love. Celebrate the Life. Share the Journey." (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
