the one

"Unresolved grief ranks as the second greatest challenge TCC faces" (p.165) in their journey. TCC experience feelings of loss for many reasons. As globally mobile children acquiring knowledge and experiences in their daily life, they have more to lose than their counterparts who stay in one location. They lose homes, schools, and relatives.
The problem is that in these types of losses, no one actually died or was divorced, and nothing was physically stolen. Contrary to obvious losses, there are no markers, no rites of passage recognizing them as they occur - no recognized way to mourn. (p.176)
