With Whit: Ryan Manion Shares How Her Grief Gave Her A New And Powerful Purpose

Losing a family member or someone you love is the most devastating thing that can happen to a person. You are left with grief that you have absolutely no control over. I grieve for my dad every single day and think about him constantly. It is a pain I know I will have for the rest of my life. When you lose someone you love, your life changes immediately. Ryan Manion is helping others navigate their new lives of grief. She has dedicated her life to supporting our nation’s military, veterans, and families of fallen heroes. She is inspired by the character, leadership, and sacrifice of her brother 1st Lt. Travis Manion, USMC, who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Al Anbar province of Iraq while drawing fire away from his wounded comrades on April 29th, 2007. Ryan is here to talk all about grief, The Travis Manion Foundation and her heartfelt new book, “The Knock at the Door: Three Gold Star Families Bonded by Grief and Purpose.” I was so inspired and comforted by our conversation. I hope you are too. Everyone grieves differently, but we all need strong support and love to move forward.
