I just saw the movie Fierce Grace about Ram Dass. The movie was so-so but there is one powerful scene in which a couple whose daughter was murdered reads a sympathy letter from Ram Dass. They said the letter contained inspiration which kept them going when they could otherwise see no future. Anyway, I just thought I'd share it here in case it could help someone...

I agree, the bulk of the movie was kinda weird, but the letter! That letter has helped me tremendously, in surviving the loss of my son/only child.
