Earlier today I posted on my Facebook page a challenge. I didn’t sleep well last night, as I tossed and turned thinking of how many people were hurt yesterday. Those families are feeling an unspeakable loss. Our country seems to have also suffered a great loss. A loss of innocence like that takes its toll on all of us.
I wanted to do something to turn that around. So I posted this challenge:
Today, in memory of those lost yesterday, I challenge you to help me restore some hope and faith in humanity. Lets make today Random Act of Kindness Day. I challenge you to spend $5 today on someone else, who isn’t expecting it. Buy the coffee of the person behind you. Or buy a $5 gift card and give it away. If you don’t have five dollars, do something nice for a neighbor, or even for a stranger. So many people are broken and hurting today–let’s make it better by each of us being the hope and light in this world. Share this challenge with your family and friends. When you do, come back here and let me know what you did.
We can’t turn back time, but we can restore some hope and kindness to our world. Will you join me? Share this with everyone you know. Blog on it. DO it. Let’s make people smile when they least expected it.
And God Bless each and every one of you today with peace, laughter, hugs and most of all, LOVE.
