She outlines various aspects of Denial, Anxiety, Awakening, Despair, Powerlessness  and eventual Acceptance. Differentiating these from the normal grief process, Sarah emphasizes how we can face inevitable feelings of grief and free our energy for positive, practical action in our personal and community lives.

    Dr. Irwin Redlener’s book “Americans at risk” draws similar conclusions from Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross’ 1969 book, On Death and Dying. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%BCbler-Ross_model

    I tend to bounce between bargaining, depression and acceptance myself.
