I couldn’t have written a better follow up to my previous post than the story that The Fresh Exchange shared on their blog today. Please, go read it here.
This story comes at the perfect moment. In the big picture, this story fills me with hope in humanity when it can be all to easy to fear it. This story is the perfect example of a true, deep act of kindness during a season in which those actions are on our minds; let’s keep that mentality year-round. On a more personal level, I read this in the morning before I sat down to translate the social reports, the stories, of children in Honduras, some of whom are separated from their families across borders.
“I think in times of global unrest and violence covering the news, these stories of hope are more important than ever….These are the stories that need to be remembered, retold, and passed along. There is no doubt that loving those around you well and setting our personal interests and thoughts aside even for just a moment can make the world seem smaller, better, and more hopeful.”
