July 6th 2016 was our first support meeting of Desert of Hope, POMC Las Vegas Chapter! There were fifteen in attendance and parents that lost their loved ones anywhere from 8 months ago to twelve years ago, Each had their stories to share and their own way to uplift one another.
Parents, siblings, family and friends gather to support one another, educate each other on the resources available. We advocate for one another as we go through stages of our case, detectives finding the murderers, going to trial, holding their hands through trial and being a shoulder to cry on or the friend to laugh with over the happy memories we want to keep alive of our loved ones.
We are living through something most people can't ever imagine, yet we are growing stronger. Day by day we will find new ways to keep our loved one's memory alive and keep their light shining on.
Day by day we will find "Believable HOPE" = Hope based on evidence that change has been experienced by others in conditions similar to yours and is absolutely possible for you!
Desert of Hope is exactly that - in the midst of our desert (the lowest valley of our life) we will find our HOPE through one another.
