Remember the Good in the World

As I sat down yesterday after lunch to write today’s post, my heart was full of emotions with the 16th being the 6 year anniversary of the shootings at Virginia Tech; an event that happened my junior year of school at the University.  That full heart sank as I pulled up my Internet (which homepage is a news channel) and saw the “Breaking News” of the horrific scene in Boston.

We can sit around all day and count the tragedies that happen around this world of ours, but I think the only we should be doing is applauding the overwhelming support of the people doing all they can to help.

Mr. Rogers said it best – “When I was a boy and I 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.’”

Such a true statement.  And now, more than ever, we need to focus on the good left in the world.

Let me end with some photos of this little place about a mile down form where Brandon and I are building our new house.  I love passing this building and we even had some pictures during our engagment photo shoot taken out front!

  1. This picture is so sweet! The store front is adorable, love old places like that. I can't imagine all that you felt yesterday. or 6 years ago. It's terrible what so many have gone through. But you're right there is still so much good in the world. And that good unites us!!
