Here's one way to make lemonade out of lemons... share what you have even when the chips are down rather than cry over your drink. Love it!
Not really sure this qualifies for a silver lining, except that though this man died alone, the folks in this story spent a lot of time unraveling the story of his life. In death, he was not alone, sort of.
I have a few more questionable silver linings to share ...
1) Junot Diaz stood up for Haitians against the government in the Dominican Republic, his homeland, in return the government took back an award it made to Diaz. I daresay Diaz is more proud of losing the honor than for taking a stand. My response is to give Diaz the good person/standing in his truth award. Silver lining?
2) This man standing by his wife shouldn't be exceptional, but apparently because he is in the NFL it is?! So, though I am suspicious of the notoriety, it is a silver lining(-ish) that his fame allows him the ability to shine a light on something we generally pretend is not happening. May their strength and courage inspire other survivors to ask for help and receive it.
