The young and the grieving: On loss, love, laughter and letting the hurt out

The death of his brother forced reporter Sean Goodwin into a world of often lonely pain. Sadness and grief, he soon discovered, are realities many of us run from, given the chance. In this raw conversation, he and other young and bereaved people reflect on what what helps, what hurts, and how to give and receive comfort.
