It's times like these when I'm reminded of how lucky we are to have people in the world like first responders and volunteers helping those in need. In photos and videos of the explosions you can always spot people running toward the danger zone. Police men, firefighters, medical assistance, those physically able to assist the hurt -- These heroes deserve applauding.
I saw a Facebook status update yesterday that really resonated with me. It was four simple words: "Please world, be better." That plea encompasses so much - it's powerful because it's desperately needed, and there's a twinge of hopelessness, which I believe we all can identify with during a tragedy of this nature. Above all, there's an underlying strength in these words. It's a strength that comes from a kind heart - one that knows that good will always prevail. Because it will. Good will always prevail.
May we all take some extra time today to hold our loved ones close. And may we all take some extra time to do our part in making the world a little bit better, whether it be saying an extra prayer, volunteering or donating. Peace & love to you all.
