Sheryl Sandberg graduation speech: It’s the hard days that determine who you are - The Boston Globe

In Sheryl Sandberg's commencement address, she talked about what she experienced following the sudden death of her husband last year.

"For many months afterward, and at many times since, I was swallowed up in the deep fog of grief — what I think of as the void — an emptiness that fills your heart, your lungs, constricts your ability to think or even to breathe. Dave’s death changed me in profound ways. I learned about the depths of sadness and the brutality of loss. But I also learned that when life sucks you under, you can kick against the bottom, break the surface, and breathe again. I learned that in the face of the void — or in the face of any challenge — you can choose joy and meaning. "
