What is Death? Is it a person, a place, a feeling? Is it good or bad? Is there a tunnel that we travel through and "go toward the light"? Do children think about Death differently than adults? Is Death our friend or our enemy? Is Death dark as night or a blazing white light? This is a collection of drawings by participants in my Death, Dying and Bereavement classes and workshops. Included are children, social workers, students, artists, nurses and other healthcare professionals. Their instructions were simply, "Draw Death". These drawings illustrate a variety of emotions including fear and sadness to hope and healing THIS IS WHAT DEATH LOOKS LIKE.
