Grieving

(En español: Duelo)

Say: greev-ing

If you've ever been really sad, you might have been grieving. You may grieve because your dog died or because you had to say good-bye to someone you loved a lot. Grieving is OK, though, because it means that you really cared about something. And after a while, you should be ready to feel happy again.
