I haven't been able to stop thinking about the tragic shooting that occurred in Newtown last Friday. My heart is so heavy for all of those families who lost loved ones. For everyone involved.
It just seems so hard to understand how something like this could happen.
I came across this photo on Facebook along with the following quote.
I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would
say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are
helping.' To this day, especially in times of 'disaster,' I remember my
mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are
still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world." -- Mister
And I tell myself that what matters is remembering there are more good people in the world than not. There are people who love and care. People who will stand up for what is right and protect those who cannot protect themselves. And while it may seem that light has been dimmed for a bit, we need to hold onto the thought that we should not give in to the darkness. Because that is what the darkness wants. For us to turn our back on the light.
I was listening to "One" by U2 last night and the lyrics hit home with me again. And I thought of this layout I had created.
And this is a time to carry each other. Lift each other up and hold tight to the goodness. God bless!
