 CBS Sunday Morning

Dealing with death is simply part of living life, as every person who dies leaves behind loved one who must face a grieving process. And while most of us eventually adapt to a “new normal,” one in 10 endures what researchers calls “complicated grief.” For them the acute phase of grief never lets up. Susan Spencer investigates the study of grief, and how a website, Modern Loss, is sharing personal stories of grief, loss and coping from around the world, sometimes with unexpected twists.

ART: Veterans on canvas
For her project titled “We the People,” artist Mary Whyte set out to paint 50 veterans from 50 states. The men and women included in the exhibition, now at the City Gallery in Charleston, S.C., are as diverse as the nation they served. Martha Teichner reports.
