that is a thoughtful post. So sad she died. We shouldn't waste this event, by not seriously considering what we can learn and to pray.

In another topic it was noted that we can show our Christain love for each other by random acts of consideration, kindness and care for others. I think these ideas of showing kindness and care for others is great, I am an introvert and need encouragement to participate in a conversation. Occasionally someone at the table will turn to me and ask me how I doing. I appreciate that.
CSPAN aired the funeral ceremony for Heather Heyer, the 32 year old woman who was killed when a car was driven by a white supremacist into a group of counter protesters in Charelettsville. Both the family and the minister said to the large gathering ( which filled two movie theaters - the funeral was broadcast live to the second theater) that we all should honor Heather by encouraging and showing care for others regardless of their cultural background or race. God would want that, there are countless examples of people showing such care in the bible.
Also, Fortune magazine states, “Diverse groups make better decisions. If everyone in the room is the same, you’ll have fewer arguments and worse answers. Diversity is a distinct competitive advantage.” Encourage diversity in your groups, both at work and elsewhere. I will try to reach out and show more care for others, including those of different back grounds, and welcome those of different backgrounds into my groups, to honor Heather Heyer. Mr. Owl
