Meditation, Thoughts, Hope
Remember Jimmy, may he Rest in Peace. Comfort his family with love.
Remember Morrey, Rodney, and Rose's son, who died too young.
Remember with thanks those blessed with rich lives - Jeanette, Ted, Stephanie's dad, and Floyd's mother.
Remember the victims of drunk driving, including the three teens from Magruder HS, who died in the car crash in Olney, MD, May 2011.
Remember dead pole vaulters, including Leon Roach and Kevin Dare. Pray the schools and NCAA fix their safety issues, so no more students will die.
Pray for those hurt by severe weather disaster and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We hope for the strength of families and friends who lost loved ones.
"If I am not for myself, who will be for me?
If I am only for myself, then what am I?
If not now, then when?" - by Hillel
One thing we learn is everyone has some pain. You lose someone you love. You struggle to make ends meet. You were rejected. You suffer pain and winter's cold. Then people reach out to say, "You are not alone."
Have hope and give hope. Can you reach out beyond the safe zone to comfort and encourage others? Make new friends, and make friends feel good.
