My younger sister's fiancé is in Boston today. My prayers are with him & all the others working to protect & serve us, until they are all home safe. This life is crazy. The world, corrupt. It hits a whole lot harder when it's your home that's hit or when people you know are in the midst of it.
When things like this happen, I can't help but think of what my father would tell me as a child. "In the end days, the world will be corrupt and bad things will happen everywhere. But we have to keep our eyes to God."
I really love this quote and when I saw it was by Mr. Rogers, I loved it even more. He was an icon in my childhood....
"When I was a boy and would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'
To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother's words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers- so many caring people in this world."
I saw a lot of photos of people running towards the attack area to help.
I have said it a million times and I will say it again...there is NOTHING meaningful or important in this world besides love.
By praying for our "Boston" I'm sending love to all those risking their lives
today and for all those that were injured or lost loved ones.
Come home safe Peter.
