Find the good.

I certainly don't need to fill you in on the events that took place yesterday in Boston. You've likely seen the footage, the photos, the Twitter posts. My reaction to acts of violence like this, which happen much too often, is always the same. I sit here speechless, in shock, feeling helpless and trying to wrap my head around how in this world such awful things can happen.

It's so easy to say we've lost faith in humanity, to say the world is going to hell in a hand basket and to feel bitterness in general toward society, but I've seen so many posts and heard so many conversations talking about the good in an awful situation like this. Even if it's just a little bit of good, people are talking about it. Yes, something horrible happened and our hearts are breaking for the victims and anyone impacted by this. But just when you think you've lost all faith in humanity, you hear about the runners who continued running straight to the hospital to give blood after the blast, the people running toward the explosion to help in any way they could, and you are reminded that there is always going to be good in this world, no matter what we are up against.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and anyone 
who has been affected by this.


  1. beautiful post, and beautiful blog! we are all thinking about those affected by yesterday's tragedy and hugging our family members a little tighter today.

  2. Amen girl! If you want to focus on the negative there will always be something to find, but good always wins over evil!
