      Kurt Vonnegut’s “Slaughterhouse Five” taught me that when you experience trauma, it’s okay to not be okay with what happened, and that it is possible to move forward after tragedy. Three years ago, I went through something utterly horrific with my two daughters and we struggled to try to make sense of how something so unspeakable could have happened to us. The disjointed plot line in SH5 helped me see that not understanding the “why” behind disorienting tragedies has the potential to be freeing, in so much as it gives us permission to focus on the present and to move forward despite not making sense of what happened. (FYI: After everything, my daughters and I are happy, healthy, and thriving! Yay!)
