This week, I talk to Roxana about the intersection of grief and immigration. We discuss the themes in grief that are universal, and those that are specific to people experiencing unique forms of loss, suh as culture loss or separation by borders. We also get personal, and investigate the experience of coming to a new place in search of safety without the kind of community support that we need as we navigate loss.
