The national magazine of The Compassionate Friends, We Need Not Walk Alone, features articles by and for parents, siblings, and grandparents who are grieving the death of a child in their family. Visit the national website to either read the current or archived issues OR submit your own article.


Have you written a story or poem you’d like to have considered for publication in We Need Not Walk Alone? You don’t have to be a professional writer—just someone who has a story to tell that will touch our readers or in some way help them cope with the natural grief process.
