Remembering Sandy Hook: 26 Random Acts of KindnessBy: wheatmeister
A friend of mine found this note on her car this week with a Starbucks gift card: “To honor the 26 people who died in Newtown, CT, my family is doing 26 acts of kindness. You are number 3. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season. God bless!”
What a great way to take a random and senseless act of violence that has devastated a community and left our country fearful and wounded and turn it into the spreading of goodwill toward total strangers. This is also a way to show children that they can make a difference for good in the lives of others. Are you up for the challenge?
