Work provides lessons for funeral directors in their own lives and lives of those they serve

Funeral directors are the professionals who help others grieve and move back to a full life following the death of a loved one. They offer strength and guidance, but along the way they gather lessons that enrich their lives.

"I don't know if working as a funeral director has changed any of my core beliefs, but it has strengthened them," said Andrea Sikora, funeral director for John A. Gentlemen Mortuaries and a member of St. Stephen the Martyr Parish in Omaha.

Alarming reality of school violence

Violence in our schools is an alarming reality in our culture. In one week - Sept. 27 to Oct. 2 - three shootings left fatalities at three schools in different states.

It began on the morning of Sept. 27 in Bailey, Colo., when 53-year-old Duane Morrison held six students hostage at Platte Canyon High School. Before it was over, Morrison killed 16-year-old Emily Keyes and himself.

Two days later in Wisconsin, a 15-year-old student shot to death Weston School Principal John Klang.
