Boston . . . and the helpers.
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
I am nearly speechless, which is quite a feat for me. I am so sad about the incident in Boston. I was very busy yesterday -- 3 doctor appointments & a massage & I have satellite radio in my car, so I didn't hear about it until I got home at 5:00 p.m. What a tragedy!!
What are people thinking? I saw little children who had been injured in some of the photos. There is so much evil in this world, but today, I want to focus on the good. When something like this happens, there isn't a lot most of us can do but pray. Then there are the helpers.
As I went back & looked at the photos, instead of seeing death & destruction the second time, I saw all the people who were helping & comforting others. There were photos of people praying, emergency workers treating the injured, people hugging one another.
Instead of just doing that during a catastrophic event, we should do it every day. There are people all around us who are hurting & we may not even see it. I need to open my eyes & not just "look" at people, I need to "see" them.
You don't even have to do anything big, sometimes just a smile or a kind word is enough.
Today, I challenge you to "see" the people around you. Do something small to make their day better. Be a helper.
Blessings to you!!
