Yesterday, Meghan Markle published a powerful op-ed in The New York Times about suffering a miscarriage over the summer. In the essay, the Duchess of Sussex wrote about how important it is to check in on each other and ask the simple question "are you OK," stressing the importance of shared grief as a means of healing.
"We have learned that when people ask how any of us are doing, and when they really listen to the answer, with an open heart and mind, the load of grief often becomes lighter — for all of us," Meghan wrote. "In being invited to share our pain, together we take the first steps toward healing."
