I was unsure what to expect—probably a good thing, as it enabled me to take the book & it's various messages as they were & without bias.
Simply put, while I wouldn't say I'm religious in the way John Ramsey is, spiritually, I believe much of what's said can be applied to anybody—not just those who necessarily believe in God. The advice of 'don't make big decisions following a tragedy' is one I wish I'd known/taken a few years ago... And how painfully this point & many others were driven home yesterday when I realized, & stated to my mum, 'I don't know how to handle anything anymore because we're in a place were we/I can't buy our way out.'
A glaringly ridiculous testimony to my own privilege? Yes. However, I found it an equally poignant message for all desperate to win the lottery, for anyone always chasing the next thing... It may give you money, but some things, the things we want most—time with those we love—cannot be bought. Even medically speaking, treatments may or may not work. No magic number in the bank will change it.
While this book touches heavily on the loss of JonBenet, there's much more depth than that story. John Ramsey may not have all the answers on relief of suffering, but he did a damn good job of helping put things in to perspective. For that, I'm eternally grateful. I'd recommend it to others who are struggling with/facing loss. The feelings & emotions covered are spot on & I appreciate it coming from a real person. Self Help books don't do justice compared to the personal narrative... At least not when we're talking serious suffering, grief & loss. 5 stars.
YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK !!!
GOD BLESS YOU, MR. RAMSEY ALONG WITH YOUR SON AND WIFE. YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION <3
