Reflecting on the recording, Danielle says:
"I didn't mention any of the names of the people I have lost. I did that on purpose as I wanted to be speaking for myself and my own experiences and something didn't feel right about sharing their stories and identifying them in a way that connects back to their families on a public show. While I didn't mention their names on the show for privacy, I say their names out loud to myself & write them to others regularly. I truly feel that saying their names is a way of staying close to the energy and the love."
