26 Acts of Kindness For NewTown Children

 Early this morning while watching Good Morning America on ABC. Laura Spencer suggested the country participate in 26 Acts of Kindness for each of the victims of 
Sandy Hook Elementary.
I thought it was a wonderful way to show how we can come together as humans in honor of those who lost there lives in such a tragic way.
 Please make sure you take time and read this entire post.
 I am working on what I can do for 26 acts of Kindness in truly meaningful ways. Ones that will honor each of those listed below with more than just a simple hello or helping someone with there packages. No, they have to be greater and they have to be heartfelt. For me, I personally don't want to forget there names, like those of many other tragedies which have happened before this one. These lives deserve more, so much more.

And, although we are all God's children, the small ones, the new ones to this life which represent a new beginning a new world to come, are here for all of us to acknowledge and protect as " the morals of our society, are in how we treat and protect the children." From what happened in NewTown it somehow doesn't ring true. It seems to be the way of this new world we live in, this new place where a lot these days, doesn't make sense. But tragedies are everywhere, more babies it seems have died this year of 2012 from violence then any other year I can seem to find.

Yet it's clear now places in our country still exist, where the innocent, those who trust the most, those who still want to believe and live as if the world still holds true, that evil doesn't or wouldn't touch. We can no longer afford to believe that way, now with this sad tragedy, can not wear blinders, no longer think that there is such a place so magical, it's untouched by such evil.

Those tiny little lives are changing things across the country which makes me believe there lives were not lost in vain. Let us not just make it a moment of tragedy to be left behind in a month. Let us make it really count. Let it make history, not in the tragedy of the moment, let it make history for the fact they lived, no matter how short the time. They lived, and by doing so they made this our America a better country forever.

In this senseless moment I have decided for the first time to work with color. To knit with the colors of the rainbow and make a blanket. And to work on what my 26 Acts of Kindness will honor of those listed below.

May God hold them tightly and their parents even tighter as they begin a long journey for there own peace. God Bless the children below...and there heroic adults.

Make this like a chain letter that no one breaks....please once you have read this post, send it on to someone else. We must in honor of these 20 children and 6 adults make the loss of there lives really count for something greater than in the way they passed. Please pass this along and don't break the chain...

If you haven't read it...the poem in the post below is truly beautiful.
