Learning to live with the impact of loss
United for World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims 2023
Each year, on the third Sunday in November, we pay homage to all those who have lost their lives in traffic incidents, to those who survived, but for whom nothing will ever be the same again, and to their families, whose lives were turned upside down at the exact same second that their loved ones’ lives changed.
On November 19, 2023, we want to remember those who have to“live with the impact” of a traffic accident. Whether direct victims or family members, they must also face a silent but overwhelming emotional burden. Each death is a tragedy that leaves an unfillable void in the families. Each serious injury brings with it, in addition to physical injuries, psychological trauma that alters the sufferer’s life.
