I cannot shake all my thoughts and heartache over Friday's tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary. I cannot imagine what those teachers, students, and families are going through right now. I simply can't fathom how someone could do such a terrible thing to innocent children. I remember feeling so safe at school when I was little. I never worried that something bad would happen at school (outside of forgetting my lunch or my mom forgetting to pick me up). These children will never be the same. They will be fearful. They will be anxious. And most of all, the way they look at the world will be forever changed.
Have you heard about the 26 Random Acts of kindness that people are doing to honor the victims?
TG and I have decided to participate as well. Yesterday we dropped off gifts for our angel from the Salvation Army Angel Tree. It felt so great to know that we could help make someone's Christmas a little better.
I'm trying to think of 25 more creative acts of kindness to honor those lost in this senseless tragedy.
To start, I'm thinking I will buy coffee for people behind me in line, bring hot chocolate to the homeless man I pass everyday on the street, and take christmas goodies (and introduce myself) to our (hall) neighbors.
I'd love love love some suggestions so please share!
