Today much of the country is participating in a Day of Mourning for those who died in Newton. I send my sincere sympathy and prayers to all affected by the tragedy. However, as a parent, I realize that there are no words and no actions that I can take that will lessen the impact or ease the pain at this time.
I have friends who have lost children and all have come to a point where they want something good to be done in their child’s name. Whether it is a gift to a charity, creating a foundation in their name, or just a simple act of kindness done with their child in mind.
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 1 Corinthians 13:13 KJV
One of the ways we can honor the lives of those who have perished is through acts of kindness and generosity. With that in mind, we are featuring The Gift of Compassion by Barb of A Life in Balance.
In her post, Barb challenges us to do something different this year: to give the gift of compassion. She encourages readers to be thoughtful, genuine, and suspend prejudices. Click here to read her post.
