Sandy Hook Holds A Lesson For Us

All day yesterday, like so many of you, I was reminded of how fragile life is. The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary has truly opened my eyes and a lot of people’s eyes to the reality of the world we live in. We’ve all heard the sayings, ‘life is too short’, ‘live life to the fullest’, or ‘live every day like it’s your last’ and to some extent these clichés all hold true. But it is somehow limiting to think that this is the message we are to live by every day. I like to think that there are many messages and most of all, lessons we could take from this sad event. And so I ask, what lessons are most important for you to live by? What lesson are you being taught at this moment as a result of this sad event? It could very well be the lesson to live life to the fullest. It could also be teaching you how to pray when you’ve never done so in your life. It could be teaching you about having sympathy and compassion towards each other. It could be teaching you about charity and giving in a time of need. It can also teach you how to take a stand for something you feel is wrong in this country. {CLICK TITLE TO READ MORE}
