Throughout the Boston tragedy, the thing that stands out the most to me is the heroes, the first responders, the men and women on the street who stepped in to help those who were hurt. People helping other people, not thinking about possible risk to themselves, but just doing what they could to be there for someone else. And it might sound corny, but that is where hope and faith and love can be seen through pain. The bad and evil cannot win, because Love trumps all. Every time. So this is just my small salute to those who helped, and will help today, and might help tomorrow. It matters. Blessings, Lisa
True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost. – Arthur Ashe
“…Encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone. Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:14-15
“The older you get the more you realize that kindness is synonymous with happiness.” – Lionel Barrymore
