As R.E.M. put it 'Everybody Hurts', you are not the only to be hurt, at this moment almost 50% of all people must be hurting for some reason. That's how life goes. So, as the R.E.M. songs says 'Hold on, Hold On.' here are some immortal words from Abraham Lincoln:

  • “In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all; and, to the young, it comes with bitterest agony, because it takes them unawares. The older have learned to ever expect it. I am anxious to afford some alleviation of your present distress. Perfect relief is not possible, except with time. You can not now realize that you will ever feel better. Is not this so? And yet it is a mistake. You are sure to be happy again. To know this, which is certainly true, will make you some less miserable now. I have had experience enough to know what I say; and you need only to believe it, to feel better at once.”
